The Preferred Catheter Type After Prolapse Surgery: A Survey Study of Surgeons



•Post-operative urinary retention after pelvic organ prolapse (POP) surgery can be treated with transurethral indwelling catheters (TIC), clean intermittent self-catheterization (CISC), or suprapubic tubes (SPT)1,2
•Each catheter has its own advantages and disadvantages, and no one catheter is considered to be superior1-4
•TIC are technically easy to use, but associated with higher rates of urinary tract infection
•CISC leads to faster resolution of post-operative urinary retention, but is associated with higher rates of patient-reported frustration and pain
•SPT are associated with higher rates of patient satisfaction and lowest rates of urinary tract infection, but has a higher malfunction rate

Study Objective

•To determine surgeon preference for catheter type to treat post-operative urinary retention after POP surgery, specifically comparing TIC, CISC, and SPT
•We aimed to determine which catheter factors were important for surgeons making this decision.
