    • Abstract:
      The article discusses intermittent self-catheterization (ISC), which involves draining the bladder intermittently in persons with voiding dysfunctions. Common causes of incomplete emptying of the bladder include diseases affecting the spinal pathway, diseases affecting nerves to the bladder, and benign prostatic hyperplasia. Advantages of ISC, disadvantages of ISC, and catheter types are also discussed.
