Cape Town, South Africa (UroToday.com)- Dr. Kelly Nast, pediatric urology fellow at University of California, San Diego, presented a retrospective chart review evaluating the use of vesicostomy buttons for pediatric patients whose management requires continuous intermittent catheterization (CIC).
In contrast, button placement can be associated with skin reactions and issues with parents. Nast notes that the appearance and apparent permanence of the button can be disturbing to parents and often requires counseling and reassurance.
