URINARY TRACT MANAGEMENT IN SPINAL CORD INJURY
Kidney failure is still a leading cause of death in people who have suffered a spinal cord injury. But kidney disease is preventable. While the kidneys are not directly affected by SCI, they can be seriously injured if bladder functions, such as urination, are not properly managed. Urinary tract management is vital to preserve kidney function after SCI.
