Hosseinpour M, Noori S, Amir-Beigi M, Pourfakharan MH, Ehteram H, Hamsayeh M - Urol Ann (2014)

Bottom Line: Post-operatively, routine laboratory urine test and complications (allergy, infection, bleeding) were compared in groups.Findings showed that there were no significant differences between groups based on urine test indices (P = NS).There were no significant differences between groups regarding of cystitis grades between study groups (P = NS).

ABSTRACT

Background: In this study, we attempt to identify the most appropriate catheter (silicone vs. latex) for short-term urinary catheterization. We compared the post-operative clinico-pathological complications between latex and silicone for short term catheterization in rabbits with hypospadias.

Materials and methods: Forty rabbits were used in our study to compare complications of catheterization. They were divided in two groups. Hypospadias like defect was created by a 1 cm long excision of the ventral urethra. For urethroplasty, we used tubularized incised plate technique. Latex and silicon catheters were used in groups 1 and 2, respectively. Post-operatively, routine laboratory urine test and complications (allergy, infection, bleeding) were compared in groups.

Results: A total of 40 rabbits underwent hypospadias repair. Findings showed that there were no significant differences between groups based on urine test indices (P = NS). Urinary tract infection rate was 10% (2 rabbits) in latex and 0% in silicone groups (P = NS). There were no significant differences between groups regarding of cystitis grades between study groups (P = NS).

Conclusion: It seems that urinary tract catheterization with latex catheters is a safe, feasible, and in-expensive procedure for short-term post-operative course in hypospadias surgery in patients without latex hypersensitivity.
