He makes it look so easy! I always say this procedure is a talent not a skill, some people just 'got it'. Dr. Fults was blessed with the talent!

I learned an amazing technique at IVECCS a couple of years ago that has served me very well. This video is great but I think would be enhanced with some anatomical diagrams for more information about how things are arranged in that mysterious area :P

Any plans of doing this using a scope and visualization? I think it would help clear the 'mystery'.

Lesa Wronski's picture

I agree with Kristy F. It would really help to actually be able to visualize where the catheter is supposed to be inserted.

If the line is attached to the leg, can it have a negative effect on how well it runs? Or does gravity not influence it?

Megan, attaching it to the leg will not affect urine flow in the line, it just keeps any tension away from pulling at the balloon in the bladder.
