Urinary Retention Treatment: Self-Catheterization
Urinary retention is a type of urinary incontinence.
Acute urinary retention is the loss of ability to urinate. Causes of urinary retention include an obstruction in the urinary tract such as an enlarged prostate or bladder stones, infections that cause swelling or irritation, nerve problems that interfere with signals between the brain and the bladder, medications, constipation, urethral stricture, or a weak bladder muscle.
Treatments for urinary retention include catheterization.
