Nahid Lorzadeh, Sirous Kazemirad and Mina Lorzadeh

Abstract:
In this cross-sectional study urinary retention after gynecologic surgeries and effect of foley catheter clamping on its prophylaxis, were studied. During the study from 21 March, 2002-20 March, 2004 one hundred patients referred to Assali women’s hospital of Khorramabad city were selected as sample size. Data such as patients’ age, gravid, kind of their previous surgeries, existence of foley catheter clamping in their prescriptions were gathered using observation and interview method, then the data were analyzed. Results showed that the most frequency from view point of age of exposure to urinary retention after surgery are age groups of 25-35 (54%). The most gravid grade related to urinary retention was G4 grade (38%). The most common cause of urinary retention was anterior-posterior colporrhaphy (22%). For treatment of urinary retention, Intermittent catheterization, Muscle relaxants and Intermittent catheterization and muscle relaxants have been used. Intermittent catheterization increases the risk of urinary tract infection. In 84% of the patients, foley catheter clamping hadn’t been done and 16% of those how had it suffered again from urinary retention. It means that clamping of foley catheter has not an effect of 100% in prevention of urinary retention. Because of the complex etiology of postoperative urinary retention, it is unlikely that clamping of foley catheter can easily resolve they problem.
