Intermittent Catheters

"I'm Not Going Home With a Catheter": Patient-Perceived Outcomes Associated With Perioperative Intermittent Catheterization.

Indwelling catheters are a known source of dissatisfaction for postoperative patients. There is a paucity of data describing patient-perceived outcomes associated with the alternative of intermittent self-catheterization (ISC).

A Scoping Review on the Impact of Hydrophilic Versus Non-Hydrophilic Intermittent Catheters on UTI, QoL, Satisfaction, Preference, and Other Outcomes in Neurogenic and Non-Neurogenic Patients Suffering from Urinary Retention- Beyond the Abstract

A new review by Barken and Vaabengaard, investigates the evidence comparing hydrophilic versus non-hydrophilic intermittent catheters for the treatment of bladder dysfunction.

A Multicenter, Open-Label, Observational Study Evaluating the Quality of Life After Using a Hydrophilic-Coated Catheter (SpeediCath) With Self-Intermittent Catheterization.

We evaluated the change in patient quality of life after the use of a hydrophilic-coated catheter (SpeediCath) in adults requiring intermittent catheterization (IC).

This was a multicenter, open-label, observational study using the Patient Perception of Intermittent Catheterization (PPIC) questionnaire and the Intermittent Self-Catheterization questionnaire (ISC-Q) and safety at 12 and 24 weeks in adult patients who had already used other type of catheters prior to switching to SpeediCath or in patients undergoing self-IC for the first time for any reason.

Indications and Outcomes for Intermittent Catheterization following Bulbar AUS Cuff Placement - Beyond the Abstract

The management of recalcitrant bladder neck contractures remains a challenge, with little consensus despite dozens of case series, expert opinions and single-institution algorithms. The challenge takes on an extra order of magnitude when the patient is also struggling with urinary incontinence, as bladder neck contractures and their associated methods for management are historically considered contraindications to artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) placement.

Hydrophilic versus non-hydrophilic catheters for clean intermittent catheterization: a meta-analysis to determine their capacity in reducing urinary tract infections.

Clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) is associated with an increased risk of urinary tract infections (UTI), urethral trauma, urethral stenosis, hematuria, and pain. The first catheters were developed of polyvinyl carbon (PVC).

Racial Differences in Urinary Catheter Use Among Female Nursing Home Residents.

To assess racial differences in prevalence of indwelling urinary catheterization and intermittent catheterization among female NH residents in the United States (US).

We performed a cross-sectional analysis using the 2019 Minimum Data Set 3.

Cost-effectiveness analysis of hydrophilic-coated catheters in long-term intermittent catheter users in the UK.

To estimate the cost-effectiveness of single-use hydrophilic-coated intermittent catheters (HCICs) versus single-use uncoated intermittent catheters (UICs) for urinary catheterization.

The evaluation took a UK national health service (NHS) perspective.

Impact of Early Self-Clean Intermittent Catheterization in Orthotopic Ileal Neobladder: Prospective Randomized Study to Evaluate Functional Outcomes, Continence Status and Urinary Tract Infections - Beyond the Abstract

Orthotopic neobladder, after radical cystectomy, has the main advantage of preserving body image, whereas improvements in quality of life over ileal conduit are still a matter of debate. Principal factors that might be associated with a decreased quality-of-life are continence status (both incontinence as well as urinary retention) and urinary tract infections (UTIs).

Translation and Validation of the Intermittent Catheterization Difficulty Questionnaire (ICDQ) into Greek.

Clean intermittent self-catheterization (CISC) is a safe and effective alternative to managing incomplete bladder emptying in patients afflicted with neurogenic bladder conditions. The Intermittent Catheterisation Difficulty Questionnaire (ICDQ) is a validated questionnaire concerning the assessment of catheter use and patient difficulties during CISC.

Patient Support Program and Healthcare Resource Utilization in Patients Using Clean Intermittent Catheterization for Bladder Management.

The primary purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of a patient-centered, chronic care self-management support program of clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) on emergency department (ED) visits and hospitalizations within the first 30 days of starting CIC.

Indications and Outcomes for Intermittent Catheterization following Bulbar AUS Cuff Placement.

To evaluate the functional and surgical impact of CIC protocols in men with a bulbar AUS in place. Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and poor bladder emptying are both sequelae of prostate cancer treatment, though there is sparse data to guide concomitant management.

Analysis of factors affecting permanent clean intermittent catheterization and bladder function after primary neurosurgical repair of lipomyelomeningocele.

This study was conducted to identify potential risk factors for permanent clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) and incontinence in patients with lipomyelomeningocele (LMMC) and evaluate how LMMC affects bladder function prognosis, measured by urodynamic (UD) score.

UTI assessment tool for intermittent catheter users: a way to include user perspectives and enhance quality of UTI management.

Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) are among the most severe complications for users of intermittent catheterisation (IC), with numerous risk factors contributing to their occurrence. The aim of this study was to develop a tool to assess UTI risk factors among IC users in a systematic way that considers the perspective of the individual user.

Impact of early self-clean intermittent catheterization in orthotopic ileal neobladder: prospective randomized study to evaluate functional outcomes, continence status and urinary tract infections.

Urinary diversions after radical cystectomy (RC) have a significant impact on quality of life and body image. Particularly for orthotopic neobladder (ONB), the rate of continence, urinary retention and urinary tract infections can impact on patient's quality of life.

Adoption of Single-Use Clean Intermittent Catheterization Policies Do Not Appear to Effect Genitourinary Outcomes in a Large Spinal Cord Injury Cohort.

In April 2008, Medicare amended their policy for clean intermittent catheter (CIC), increasing coverage from 4 re-used catheters per month to up to 200 single-use catheters. The primary reason for the policy change was an assumed decrease in risk of urinary tract infection (UTI) with single-use catheters.

A Real-world Data Analysis of Intermittent Catheterization, Showing the Impact of Prelubricated Versus Hydrophilic Catheter Use on the Occurrence of Symptoms Suggestive of Urinary Tract Infections.

Systematic reviews have highlighted the lack of evidence on choosing the type of intermittent urinary catheter (IUC) with regard to the occurrence of urinary tract infections (UTIs).

To describe the incidence and frequency of symptoms suggestive of UTIs (ssUTIs) for prelubricated versus hydrophilic IUCs.

Effects of hydrophilic coatedĀ cathetersĀ on urethral trauma, microtrauma and adverse events with intermittent catheterization in patients with bladder dysfunction: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Hydrophilic coated catheters are recommended to reduce the side effects of intermittent catheterization (IC) in patients with bladder dysfunction. However, there is lack of Level one evidence to support the use of this intervention.

[Evaluation of management of patients under clean intermittent cathteterization by general practitioners].

Clean Intermittent Catheterization (CIC) is the method of choice for bladder emptying in patients having bladder emptying disorders, acquired or pharmacologically induced, whether it is neurologically related or not.

Urinary catheter use in patients with hip fracture: Are current guidelines appropriate? A retrospective review.

Guidelines for urinary catheterization in patients with hip fracture recommend limiting catheter use and using intermittent catheterization preferentially to avoid complications such as urinary tract infection (UTI) and postoperative urinary retention (POUR).
