Abstract

Objectives. To describe the initial experience of a newly designed temporary urethral catheter, ContiCath, as an aid in the management of postoperative or temporary outflow obstruction. In patients with normal detrusor and sphincter function, this catheter allows volitional voiding while maintaining an open prostatic urethra. Methods. In a pilot study, 64 nonconsecutive patients with postoperative or temporary urinary retention, at eight clinical trial sites, were enrolledfor the placement of this temporary catheter. Three patients did not have the catheter placed because of placement failure because of either a large median lobe or a urethral stricture. The remaining 61 patients were dividedinto three groups: those with non-neuropathic causes of retention and retention for 1 week or less (37 patients), those with non-neuropathic causes of retention and retention for longer than 1 week (19 patients), and those with neuropathic causes of retention and retention for longer than 1 week (5patients). The ContiCath is placed in the office setting, in the same fashion as a Foley catheter. A blue prolene tether extends from the bulbar urethra to the meatus to assist in the removal of the device. Patients were then reassessed at 3 hours, and at 7, 14, 21, and 28 days, at which point the device was removed. Results. In patients with a neuropathic cause for their retention (5 patients) and those with non-neuropathic causes of retention and retention for longer than 1 week (19 patients), only 3 patients were able to void after the catheter was placed. Of the 37 patients with a non-neuropathic cause and retention 1 week or less, controlled voiding was seen in 33 patients (89%). Controlled voiding was defined as the patient's volitional ability to initiate and stop his urinary stream. There were no complications with catheterplacement; however, 8 patients (24.2%) had minor adverse experiences of frequency/urgency (n = 3), incontinence (n = 3), migration of the catheter (n= 1), and pain (n = 1). Conclusions. ContiCath offers an alternative to an indwelling Foley catheter in men with temporary bladder outlet obstruction and urinary retention. UROLOGY 53: 1104-1107, 1999.
