Intermittent catheterization spinal cord injury

Jong Soo Lee, Sang Woon Kim, Sang Hyun Jee, Joon Chul Kim, Jong Bo Choi, Sung Yong Cho, Jang Hwan Kim
PURPOSE: Complaints from spinal cord injury (SCI) patients are typically related to physical disability affecting activities of daily life. However, difficulties with voiding and defecation and/or sexual function can also be major concerns. The general population and even physicians are generally unaware of these complaints; therefore, this study focuses on surveying SCI patients regarding challenges that are faced in daily life. METHODS: A questionnaire was administered randomly and anonymously to SCI patients who visited the Korea Spinal Cord Injury Association and several rehabilitation hospitals in the Republic of Korea in 2013...

Leiomyosarcoma (LMS) is a rare but well-recognized malignant soft tissue sarcoma of smooth muscle origin. Metastases commonly occur in the lungs, liver, kidney, brain, and bone. Cases of metastatic osseous lesions or other extradural space-occupying masses secondary to LMS leading to neurologic compromise are relatively commonplace in the literature. Conversely, cases of intramedullary spinal cord metastasis (ISCM), an unusual entity as a sequela of any cancer, are exceedingly rare as a consequence of LMS. Only 2 cases of an ISCM from LMS are currently documented in the literature, and to the best of our knowledge, no case is described in the rehabilitation literature...

AIMS: To investigate which urodynamic parameters are associated with renal deterioration over a median of 41 years follow-up after traumatic spinal cord injury. METHODS: Medical records of patients with a traumatic spinal cord injury sustained 1944-1975 were reviewed from time of injury until 2012. Patients who attended regular renography and/or renal clearance examinations and had minimum one cystometry and pressure-flow study were included. Renal deterioration was diagnosed as split renal function ≤30% in one kidney or relative glomerular filtration rate ≤51% of expected according to age and gender...

Intravesical botulinum toxin A (BoNTA) injection has been widely used for the treatment of detrusor overactivity in patients with neurogenic bladder due to spinal cord injury who do not respond to conventional treatment. There is no consensus about antibiotic prophylaxis for this procedure. We conducted a retrospective analysis of medical records of adult patients with spinal cord injury who underwent detrusor BoNTA injection between January of 2007 and December of 2013 in a rehabilitation hospital. Occurrence of symptomatic urinary tract infection (UTI) was assessed in 3 groups in accordance with their use of antibiotics (prophylactic dosage, 3 days, more than 3 days) for the treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria...

OBJECTIVE: Intradetrusor injection of onabotulinum toxin A (IDIBA) is the third-line therapy for patients with neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO). There is few evidence of long-term efficacy but no study assessed reasons for failure or abandonment of IDIBA and CISC (clean intermittent self-catheterization) combined strategy. We aimed to assess its long-term outcome in NDO management, and analyze failure and discontinuation. MATERIALS/PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed medical records of patients admitted in our neurourology department between 2001 and 2013...

OBJECTIVE: Self-clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) is a part of the arsenal of treatment strategies of neurogenic bladder (1). The acquisition of this technique depends on environment and parameters related to the patients, that can be measured by the FIM score (Functional Independence Measure), validated in various neurological populations (2). The objective of this study is to determine whether disability, as measured by the FIM, is predictive of the acquisition and the retention of CIC...

Spinal cord injuries (SCI) result in the loss of movement and sensory feedback as well as organs dysfunctions. For example, nearly all SCI subjects loose their bladder control and are prone to kidney failure if they do not proceed to intermittent (self-) catheterization. Electrical stimulation of the sacral spinal roots with an implantable neuroprosthesis is a promising approach, with commercialized products, to restore continence and control micturition. However, many persons do not ask for this intervention since a surgical deafferentation is needed and the loss of sensory functions and reflexes become serious side effects of this procedure...

BACKGROUND: Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a major recurrent problem for spinal cord injury (SCI) patients. Repeated antibiotic treatments contribute to the emergence of multidrug-resistant bacteria (MDRB). We evaluated the use of weekly oral cycling antibiotics (WOCA) in the prevention of UTIs over a mean follow-up period of 53 months (median follow-up period: 57 months) and analyzed the risk of MDRB emergence. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study of adult SCI patients with neurogenic bladder who were receiving the WOCA regimen...

No systematic review has been published on the use of acupuncture for the treatment of chronic urinary retention (CUR) due to spinal cord injury (SCI). The aim of this review was to assess the effectiveness and safety of acupuncture for CUR due to SCI. Three randomized controlled trials (RCTs) including 334 patients with CUR due to SCI were included. Meta-analysis showed that acupuncture plus rehabilitation training was much better than rehabilitation training alone in decreasing postvoid residual (PVR) urine volume (MD -109...

CONTEXT: Bladder management in spina bifida patients relies on clean intermittent catheterization and oral antimuscarinics with a significant failure rate. The efficacy of intradetrusor injections of botulinum toxin has been confirmed in patients with spinal cord injury or multiple sclerosis but not in patients with myelomeningocele. OBJECTIVE: To conduct a systematic review of current evidence regarding the efficacy of intra-detrusor injections of Botulinum Toxin A (BTX-A) in spina bifida patients with neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO) refractory to antimuscarinics...

The association between the development of bladder cancer and chronic bladder irritation is well established in the literature. Chronic urinary tract irritation can be the result of bacterial infections, foreign bodies, trauma of repeated catheterization, neurogenic bladder, urolithiasis, or chronic bladder outlet obstruction, all which have been implicated in the pathogenesis of non-bilharzial squamous cell carcinoma of the bladder (SCC). With many of the aforementioned factors present in patients with spinal cord injury, several retrospective studies have demonstrated a 16-28 fold increased relative risk of bladder cancer, with SCC accounting for 10 times more cases of bladder cancer compared to the general population...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective analysis. OBJECTIVES: In patients with spinal cord injury, limitations in upper extremity (UE) motor function are cited as a reason for the lack of adherence to clean intermittent catheterization (CIC). By examining the UE function in spinal cord injury (SCI) patients, we aim to provide insight into why CIC 'dropout' occurs and determine a more appropriate target percentage for CIC in this patient population. SETTING: United States centers participating in National Spinal Cord Injury Database (NSCID)...

INTRODUCTION: Many patients conduct internet searches to manage their own health problems, to decide if they need professional help, and to corroborate information given in a clinical encounter. Good information can improve patients' understanding of their condition and their self-efficacy. Patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) featuring neurogenic bladder (NB) require knowledge and skills related to their condition and need for intermittent catheterization (IC). METHODS: Information quality was evaluated in videos accessed via YouTube relating to NB and IC using search terms "neurogenic bladder intermittent catheter" and "spinal cord injury intermittent catheter...
