Urinary retention should be treated in a timely manner to prevent complications. Common therapeutic measures include:
Urinary catheterization: The doctor will insert a urinary catheter to get urine from the bladder out.
However, this method runs the risk of causing complications such as infection if used regularly due to bacteria entering the body through a catheter.
Therefore, it is necessary to change the catheter several times per day to avoid complications.
Urethral angioplasty and ureteral stenting: The urethra can be safely enlarged by inserting small tubes inside.
