In TUVP group, meatus urinarius stenosis occurred in 7 cases, posterior urethrostenosis in 2, urinary exudation in 1, bleeding in 3, mild incontinence in 1 and epididymitis in 3, with a complication rate of 6.8%.
The catheter enters the bladder and is then removed at a constant velocity while a fluid is constantly pumped (infused) into it by a syringe pump at a steady rate and then flows out through the gap between the catheter and the urethral wall.
Substantial new findings have been published on alternatives to urethral catheters and new catheter materials.
In a newborn with anal atresia and urethral valves an incomplete VACTERL association, was diagnosed and a colon anus praeter was placed.
Evoked urethral and anal responses are produced by electrical stimulation of penis, bladder neck and anus.
Evaluation of vesico-urethral and sweating function in disorders presenting with parkinsonism
This study suggests that high intravesical pressure during transurethral surgery might enhance bacterial adherence to urothelium and thereby increase the risk of manifest infection in the postoperative course.
Antibiotic prophylaxis in transurethral surgery: A comparison of sulbactam-ampicillin and cefoxitin
The efficacy and safety of perioperative prophylaxis with sulbactam-ampicillin or cefoxitin was compared in a prospective randomized double-blind study of 103 patients undergoing transurethral surgery.
It is concluded that sulbactam-ampicillin and cefoxitin are equally effective and safe in preventing postoperative urinary tract infection in transurethral surgery.
