There was no correla-tion between detrusor contractility and the lasting time of indwelling catheter (r=-0.024,P>0.05),butdetrusor contractility was correlated with DI,the amplitude of DI and the grade of bladder outlet obstruction(r=0.377,0.604 and 0.473,respectively;P<0.05,0.01 and 0.01,respectively).
Results The complications were observed in 13 cases(17.1%) which included 4 cases of migrating of catheter tip, 2 of obliteration of target artery, 2 of delayed and local hemorrhage, 1 of blockage of indwelling catheter, 1 of incision delayed healing,1 of port exposure, 1 of detachment of catheter from PCS and 1 of false aneurysm of target artery.
METHODS One hundred and ninety-three strains of pathogens were isolated from UTI patients with indwelling catheter from May 2002 to May 2004. RESULTS Among 193 isolates, 118 strains (61.1%) were Gram-negative bacilli, 49 (25.3%) were Gram-positive cocci and 26 (13.5%) of fungi.
Blood samples (for measurement of CD4+ cell counts) were drawn from an indwelling catheter invisibly for the subjects.
These results demonstrate that a permanent indwelling catheter in this animal model facilitates multiple dose delivery of immunotoxin therapy allowing the assessment of various treatment schedules and the achievement of enhanced therapeutic effect.
Serial blood samples were collected through an indwelling catheter intermittently for 24 h for various routes.
The bladder was filled completely and an indwelling catheter introduced, the formalin solution being left in the bladder for 5 to 30 min (mean: 12 min).
Bacteriuria or indwelling catheter preoperatively did not seem to predispose to stricture formation.
