Self Catheterization Aids

Self-Catheterization aids are needed when the bladder is unable to empty completely or it does not empty at all. There are many causes for this problem in some cases called neurogenic bladder, stroke, spinal cord injury, diabetes, spina bifida, and obstruction to the outflow of urine are the most common reasons. It may happen that after an operation on the colon such as a colostomy, the bladder does not empty well and there may be a need to self catheterize for some time until the bladder begins to function normally again.
