Catheter-related bladder discomfort is frequent in the post-perative setting, due to an indwelling urinary catheter. It clearly causes discomfort for the patient with the potential consequences of prolonging the post-operative course. Effective treatment to prevent the condition is missing, and lots of different strategies have been investigated. In this review, we aim to address the current options for treatment with the purpose to encourage focus on the topic and suggest strategies to prevent the condition in order to facilitate a better patient course.
