Long Term Safety

Bakke A, Digranes A, Hoisaeter PA (1997)
Physical predictors of infection in patients treated with clean intermittent catheterisation: 7-year study

Long term evidence that intermittent catheterisation using LoFric reduces the risk for urethral complications, including UTI. For example, 65% UTI-free and 39% with sterile urine after long term LoFric use.

7 year follow up on 155 LoFric patients.

Clean intermittent catheterisation in spinal cord injury patients: long-term followup of a hydrophilic low friction technique
Evidence on the long term use of hydrophilic catheters to reduce UTI and prevent urethral trauma. For example, no new urethral trauma was identified during a 5-9 year follow up with LoFric.
5-9 year follow up on 30 LoFric patients.
