  1. Hydrophilic catheters and reduced risk of uti

    key:global.content-type: Artikel

    Extensive studies support scientific literature claiming that use of hydrophilic catheters reduce urethral trauma and urinary tract infections. This in turn can minimize the need for antibiotics. Because of these benefits, we now know that hydrophilic catheters are one of the most cost-effective ways to prevent long term urological complications in general and UTI in particular.

  2. Long-term safety of intermittent catheterization

    key:global.content-type: Artikel

    Single-use hydrophilic catheters were developed in the early eighties to address long-term complications of intermittent catheterization as seen when reusing plastic catheters with add-on lubrication. As reported by Wyndaele and Maes1 and Perrouin-Verbe et al.2 the majority of complications related to intermittent catheterization occur after long-term use as a result of damage to the urethral wall from repeated catheterizations. In contrast, long-term use of LoFric hydrophilic catheters is reported to prevent urethral trauma and complications.3 4

  3. Behandlingsmuligheder ved ufuldstændig blæretømning

    key:global.content-type: Artikel

    Urinretention er manglende evne til at tømme blæren for urin, hvilket efterlader resturin i blæren, som kan føre til komplikationer. Det er vigtigt at vide, at selvom en patient kan lade vandet en smule, så kan der stadig være en større mængde urin tilbage i blæren.
