A new urethral catheterisation device (UCD) to manage difficult urethral catheterisation.

World J Urol 2018 Sep 24. Epub 2018 Sep 24.

Urology Department, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

The cost of urethral catheterisation injury (UCI) is significant, but the true incidence of patient care error is difficult to establish in the absence of specific hospital codes recording difficult urethral catheterisation (DUC) and UCI. For many years urologists are familiar passing a non-traumatic hydrophilic guidewire blindly into the bladder to aid urethral catheter insertion in difficult circumstances. However, so far, no purpose-built regulated medical device was available on the market and clinicians had to improvise. Read More

Formal sacrocolpopexy reduces hypercontinence rates in female neobladder formation.

Neurourol Urodyn 2018 Sep 17;37(7):2281-2285. Epub 2018 Apr 17.

Department of Surgery, Urology Division Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, New York.

Aims: Continent urinary diversion is preferred by some patients and orthotopic urinary diversion (OUD) has become the procedure of choice for most men following cystectomy for invasive bladder cancer. OUD in women, however, is less common, likely due to a high rate of hypercontinence (HC), potentially from lax support of pelvic structures similar to pelvic organ prolapse. As such, we evaluated if abdominal sacrocolpopexy (ASC) at the time of OUD in women led to decreased rates of HC. Read More

Spinal Medicine Department, Prince of Wales Hospital, Level 2, High Street Entrance, Randwick, NSW, Australia, 2031.

Background: Neuropathic or neurogenic bladder describes a process of dysfunctional voiding as the result of injury in the brain, spinal cord or nerves innervating the bladder. People with neuropathic bladder, such as from spinal cord injury (SCI), are at significant risk of morbidity from urinary tract infections (UTI). Effective methods to prevent UTI in people with SCI have been sought for many years. Read More

Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate in Patients Requiring Anticoagulation.

Curr Urol Rep 2017 Oct;18(10):77

Indiana University School of Medicine, 1801 Senate Blvd. Suite 220, Indianapolis, IN, 46202, USA.

Purpose Of Review: This is to evaluate and discuss the literature surrounding holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) in patients on anticoagulation.

Recent Findings: The relationship of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) to bothersome lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) is well established with a majority of men over the age of 60 having significant symptoms. Patients with severe enough symptoms often require surgery and with cardiovascular disease ranking as the primary cause of death in the USA, a growing number will be taking antiplatelet (AP) or anticoagulation (AC) for primary or secondary prevention of disease.

Intermittent catheterisation after botulinum toxin injections: the time to reassess our practice.

Int Urogynecol J 2017 Sep 23;28(9):1351-1356. Epub 2017 Jan 23.

Research Department of Clinical Physiology, Division of Medicine, University College London, London, UK.

Introduction And Hypothesis: Botulinum toxin has become a widely adopted treatment for patients with recalcitrant overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms. Some recommend clean intermittent self-catheterisation (CISC) if a postvoid residual (PVR) >200 ml posttreatment, but there is no evidence for this recommendation. The aim of this study was to identify whether abstinence from CISC as a routine strategy for patients with a PVR following intradetrusor botulinum toxin injections is associated with any measurable adversity.
