Spontaneous Void Suprapubic Catheter Catheterised patients invariably develop colonised urine, usually with a mixed flora. Effect of bladder management on urological here, unless the patient develops systemic signs of infection complications in spinal cord injured patients. Suprapubic catheterisation (SPC) Patients with large acontractile bladders (capacity >500ml) can be safely catheterised on the ward under local anaesthetic and cystodistension, using one of the commercially available introducing trocars and a 12 or 16Ch Foley catheter. The poor “balloon memory” of pure silicone catheters may cause difficulty with subsequent removal, and coated latex may be the material of choice for suprapubic catheters. Care should be taken in selecting an appropriate suprapubic puncture site to avoid deep skin creases. In obese patients, and in those with small and hyperreflexic bladders, careful cystoscopic placement of the stab cystostomy trocar, or formal open cystostomy under general or spinal anaesthesia in the operating room is recommended. In this way, autonomic dysreflexia is avoided, and the risk of inadvertent small bowel injury is minimised. SPC is increasingly used as a method of bladder drainage in the first few weeks after SCI, and is the personal preference of many patients in the long term. Fluid restriction is unnecessary—an intake of 3 litres per day may help reduce the risk of blockage. Blockage by sediment, and in hyperreflexic patients, by lumenal compression and mucosal plugging results in “bypassing”, and in high cord lesions, the associated bladder spasm frequently results in episodes of autonomic dysreflexia. Intermittent self-catheterisation (ISC) When intermittent catheterisation has been performed by the nursing staff as part of initial bladder management, ISC can start as soon as the patient sits up. Patients catheterise themselves with the aim of remaining continent between catheterisations, therefore avoiding the need to wear urinary drainage apparatus. Patients with acontractile bladders are the most suitable candidates for ISC, though hyperreflexic detrusor activity is not a contraindication provided it is well controlled with anticholinergic therapy. A “clean” but not sterile technique is employed, using 12–14Ch Nelaton catheters. Although commercially available coated single use catheters are popular in hospitals, Nelaton 60 catheters with applied lubricating gel are significantly cheaper in the community. There is a small risk of urethral trauma and 50 subsequent stricture associated with re-usable catheters. However, patients appear no more vulnerable to infection by 40 using such catheters, and in developing countries (provided they can be washed in clean water) re-usable catheters should 20 be the first choice. The long-term results of ISC compare favourably with other 20 forms of bladder management, and the incidence of infection and stone formation is considerably less than in those patients 10 with long-term indwelling catheters. Ultrasound (US) This is the most useful non-invasive technique to monitor Box 7. The catheterisation combination of plain abdominal radiography with US has • Minimal detrusor activity superseded routine intravenous urography for annual review, • Large capacity bladder and most of the important changes to the upper tracts, • Adequate outlet resistance especially dilatation, parenchymal scarring, and stone • Manual dexterity formation, can be diagnosed on US. When abnormalities are • Pain-free catheterisation detected, other imaging modalities may be required. The cystometrogram relates the filling pressure to bladder volumes, and identifies and quantifies unstable contractions and abnormalities of compliance. The simultaneous contrast radiological study allows screening of the bladder and urethra. This is an important part of the investigation and is video-recorded or the images digitised.

On balance 500 mg antabuse otc symptoms kidney stones, these therapies are recommended only for the minority of children who manifest more severe forms GBS: those that have lost the ability to ambulate or have bulbar weakness causing dysphagia or aspiration cheap 500mg antabuse with visa medicine lake california. Because of the difficulty with vas- cular access and potential problems with fluid shifts given smaller blood volume, of the two therapies, treatment with IVIg has become the accepted therapy for GBS in children. The recommended schedule is 2 g=kg of body weight divided into five con- secutive daily doses of 400 mg=kg each. Side effects are generally minor, but severe side effects can include chemical meningitis, acute tubular necrosis, and renal failure (particularly in patients with pre-existing renal disease), thomboembolic events, and rarely anaphylaxis. Table 3 Treatment Options for GBS Therapy Regimen Side effects Plasma exchange Remove 200–250 mL=kg Catheter placement may cause of plasma over 7–10 days pneumothorax, bleeding, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary emboli, or sepsis. Blood removal may cause hypotension, anemia, thrombocytopenia, or electrolyte derangements Intravenous 0. In centers with appropriate experience, this may be safely done in children who weigh more than 10 kg. The usual protocol, derived from experience with adults, involves exchanges on the 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th days targeting a total exchange volume of 250 mL=kg. Problems with plasma exchange include difficulty with placement and maintenance of central lines and hypotension during exchanges. If patients experience a relapse within approximately 10 days of the first treatment, retreatment with the same initial agent at half the dose is recommended. Prognosis Overall prognosis in GBS is good with approximately 90–95% of affected children making a complete functional recovery within 6–12 months. Those who do not recover completely are often ambulating independently with only minor neurologic residua. Since the advent of modern critical care, mortality from GBS in children is rare. CHRONIC INFLAMMATORY DEMYELINATING POLYRADICULOPATHY (CIDP) CIDP is a form of inflammatory motor and sensory neuropathy that evolves over a protracted time of more than 4–8 weeks. CIDP is less common than GBS and occurs less frequently in children than in adults. Nonetheless, CIDP represents approxi- mately 10% of all chronic childhood neuropathies. Diagnosis=Clinical Features The classic symptoms and signs of CIDP include largely symmetric weakness in proximal and distal limb muscles, reduced or absent tendon reflexes, and, sometimes, sensory deficits and paresthesias. Most often children present with abnormal gait and frequent falls secondary to weakness of the legs. CIDP may manifest with a chronic progressive, monophasic, or relapsing–remitting clinical course. Weakness is primarily a consequence of conduc- tion block resulting from focal demyelination; as such it often responds well to treat- ment. After years of disease, there can be accumulating axonal degeneration, clinically evident by wasted muscles, which may be irreverisible. There are many causes of symmetrical weakness in children ranging from central nervous system disorders to muscle disease. In patients without sensory symptoms and signs, anterior horn cell disease (spinal muscular atrophy), neuromus- cular junction disease, and muscle disease are important considerations. Neuropathy in children is often due to inherited disorders such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT type 1–4 and X) or less commonly due to inborn errors of metabolism such as Krabbe’s disease, metachromatic leukodystrophy, Refsum’s disease, adrenomyelo- leukodystrophy, or acute intermittent porphyria. A diagnosis of CIDP is made primarily on the basis of nerve conduction studies (Table 4). Although decreased conduction velocities and prolonged distal motor latencies can be seen in both CIDP and hereditary demyelinating neuropathy, CIDP is distinguished by the presence of 172 Sumner Table 4 Clinical and Electrophysiologic Criteria for Childhood CIDP Mandatory clinical criteria Progression of muscle weakness in proximal and distal muscles of upper and lower extremities over at least 4 weeks, or rapid progression (GBS-like presentation) followed by a relapsing or protracted course (>1 year) Major laboratory features Electrophysiologic criteria Must demonstrate at least three of the following four major abnormalities in motor nerves (or two of the major plus two of the supportive criteria) A. Conduction block or abnormal temporal dispersion in one or more motor nerves at sites not prone to compression: a. Conduction block: at least 50% drop in negative peak area or peak-to-peak amplitude of proximal compound action potential (CMAP) if duration of negative peak of proximal CMAP is < 130% of distal CMAP duration.
