LATEX ALLERGY
UROLOGIC CARE AND MANAGEMENT:
According to the SBA, the urologic care of children with spina bifida has undergone several important changes in the last decade. The emphasis is now on early catheterization of the child’s lower urinary tract and preventative treatment to preserve both kidney and bladder function.
