Özet

Objectives: We retrospectively evaluated the frequency of changing to 4/day intermittent catheterization (IC) in patients with subacute spinal cord injury (SCI) who had been initiated on IC 6 times a day and started oral anticholinergic treatment following urodynamic investigation for decreased maximum cystometric capacity and undergone a follow-up urodynamic study within 45 days. The goal of the study was to see if the second urodynamic study was necessary.
