According to recently published US study as many as 18 complications can be avoided from the age of 40 until death when using hydrophilic catheters instead of non-coated catheters. This translates into savings of almost $10,000 per patient.

Intermittent catheterisation is a therapy that comes with many barriers. Barriers sometimes prevent practicing intermittent catheterisation accurately and as a result the positive outcomes are lost.
As a part of our urinary system, the bladder is responsible for many important body functions, such as waste elimination and blood regulation. A functioning bladder should be able to both store and void urine. However, sometimes this functionality is interrupted by damage.
