Abstract

In spinal cord injury, various options exist for the management of the neurogenic bladder. For the management of neurogenic bladder, urethral stent was placed under a cystoscopic guidance as one day procedure. Urethral stents were inserted in a T12 spinal cord injured patient who had recurrent urinary tract infections and a vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) and a T3 spinal cord injured patient who had a detrusor-sphincter dyssynergia. In the first case, recurrent urinary tract infection and VUR were resolved after the stenting. In the second case, urethral stent was removed because of the failure of continuous drainage. Because of its easily reversible nature, the urethral stent can be adopted for use in pateints as an option of neurogenic bladder management.
