penis - buck's fascia
Back
Forward

While passing a cathether through the penis to enter the urinary bladder, potential exists for injury. An injury to the portion of the urethra between the perineal membrane and bulb may result in an accumulation of bloody urine within the scrotum, penile shaft, and anterior and lateral abdominal walls – this occurs when urine has entered the perineal cleft. The perineal cleft is continuous with the space between the tunica dartos and external spermatic fascia surrounding the scrotum, the space between the tunica dartos and Buck’s fascia, and the space between Scarpa’s fascia and the EAO fascia. Note that the bloody urine will not spread to the lower limb.
