Abstract

Objective: To evaluate whether reconstructive hand surgery could improve the ability of tetraplegic patients to perform clean intermittent self-catheterization (CIC). Materials and methods: The subjects were patients with complete traumatic tetraplegia admitted to the Nagano Rehabilitation Center between 1977 and 1996. A total of 63 subjects were included in this study with an age range of 18-73 years (mean 38.2 years). Reconstructive hand surgery was performed on 44 hands (28 cases). Current urological conditions were assessed by interview or mail questionnaire. Results: Fifty-one per cent (22/43) of the patients with C6 level of tetraplegia and 86% (12/14) of those with C7 or C8 neurological level of injury could perform CIC independently and only one subject needed assisted CIC. Conclusion: CIC is the preferred option for people with tetraplegia. Reconstructive hand surgery is thus recommended to make urological management more independent for a selected group of people with tetraplegia.
