Millions of adults suffer from chronic urinary retention or disorders that require catheterization for bladder management. The current standard of care for these patients consists of three different methods of catheterization, all of which present varying levels of infection, urethral trauma, and patient discomfort or inconvenience. We studied a 34 -year-old man with chronic urinary retention, frequent urinary tract infections and strictures, with a fully internal, extended use, wirelessly controlled catheter system. This new system was designed to improve overall Quality of Life and potentially decrease the rate of catheter associated clinical complications.
