When possible, with the larger diameter of the cystoscope relative to a Foley catheter, effective clot evacuation can proceed, possibly concomitant with the placement of a suprapubic catheter for more facile post-operative bladder irrigation
. (6) Focal bleeding vessels can be cauterized either with a Bugbee electrode or laser fiber, though aggressive, diffuse fulguration risks potential late scar formation and bladder capacity compromise.

The specimens were submitted as voided urine (n = 12; 67%), bladder irrigation
(n = 4; 22%), ureteral brush (n = 1; 6%), and nephrostomy tube (n = 1; 6%) samples.
The number of platelet infusion was reduced, and the bladder irrigation
was discontinued from day 26.
To facilitate the urinary flow, placement of urinary catheter is sometimes needed for intermittent or continuous bladder irrigation
. Instillation of agents such as alum, silver nitrate, prostaglandin (PG) or formalin is the therapeutic intervention used to halt hemorrhage in severe HC [4-7].
Another study showed a decrease in body temperature with the onset of epidural anaesthesia, before bladder irrigation
was commenced (Hahn 1993), indicating that this may partly contribute to heat loss.
By contrast, attending to bladder irrigation
was much less frequent (n=8).
Lemons recently received the 2003 Outstanding Young Investigator Award from the International Campaign for Cures of Spinal Cord Injury Paralysis [ICCP].) The other continuation grant went to Ken Waites, M.D., University of Alabama at Birmingham, for "Evaluation of Three Bladder Irrigation
Methods for Treatment of UTI in Persons With SCI."
Immediate post-operative period bladder irrigation
was maintained with three way catheter.
Urinary tract infections with Burkholderia cepacia have been associated after bladder irrigation
or use of contaminated hospital objects.
