Clean intermittent catheterization has become a usual procedure in urologic practice. Self lubrificated catheters are nowadays accepted as the most efficient. This randomised and prospective study compared tolerance and efficiency in a group of 27 patients of three well known catheters (12 charriere, straight): Flocath (Ruschcare), Lofric (Astratech) and Easycath (Coloplast). The systematic comparison of this three catheters did not allow to put in a prominent position one of these. The three catheters are extremely close in terms of tolerance and performance.
