Intermittent Self catheterisation (ISC) is frequently used to manage lower urinary tract dysfunctions, but research shows that care for patients using ISC may not always be based on evidence. The purpose of this review was to summarise evidence related to adherence to ISC, complication rates, satisfaction with ISC, and its effect on health-related quality of life.
Newly published data shows that multiple-reuse catheters pose a potential safety concern for people practicing intermittent catheterisation.
Given the great variability in the definitions used to diagnose Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), this review will aid in providing an overview of the joint clinical evidence between the different bladder management methods with regard to UTI risk.
We are all human beings but let’s face it, our anatomy is not the same. Men and women experience gender-specific challenges when it comes to urological complications and there are differences that need to be taken into account when addressing these problems.
This is the first study performed in Nepal to identify the rate of intermittent catheterisation (ISC) continuation after a rehabilitation program, among individuals with spinal cord injuries (SCI).
