Many patients fitted with long-term urinary catheters suffer from the build-up of debris in the bladder - leading to complications. Existing methods of irrigation appear to be rather ineffective in the removal of the debris and/or result in complications themselves. The article describes (part of) a detailed study of bladder irrigation and the development of a novel irrigation device. The work is now being used by the BioMed centre at Southmead Hospital, Bristol (contact Adele Long) with commercial partners.
