Rijal A, Little B, McPhee S, Meddings RN (2013) Bladder outflow problems in females
Example on LoFric use to treat and prevent recurrent urethral strictures.
Study on 188 females with bladder outflow problems.
Lauritzen M, Greis G, Sandberg A, Wedren H, Ojdeby G, Henningsohn L (2009) Intermittent self-dilatation after internal urethrotomy for primary urethral strictures: a case-control study
Evidence of the preventative effects of intermittent self-dilatation (ISD) on stricture recurrence. For example, stricture recurrence was 8% among those who practiced ISD with hydrophilic catheters and 32% in the control. The median time to first recurrence was 2 years for the ISD group and 6 months for the control.
3-6 year study on 55 LoFric and other hydrophilic catheter- users and 162 control patients.
Kjaergaard B, Walter S, Bartholin J, Andersen JT, Nohr S, Beck H, Jensen BN, Lokdam A, Glavind K (1994) Prevention of urethral stricture recurrence using clean intermittent self-catheterization
Provides evidence for the use of LoFric to effectively reduce the frequency of recurrent urethral strictures. For example, 68% of patients not treated with intermittent catheterization experience recurrent strictures during the first year after urethrotomy compared to 19% in the LoFric group.
1-4 year study on 31 LoFric users and 24 control patients.
