The compatibility of genitourinary prostheses and intermittent self-catheterization was established in 13 prosthetic recipients who were concomitantly on intermittent self-catheterization for bladder emptying dysfunction. All patients were able to catheterize themselves successfully after implantation of the prosthesis. No prosthetic infection was encountered in our series. Two penile prosthetic recipients suffered unilateral epididymitis that was treated successfully. Although mechanical complications were encountered they were repaired readily and were not considered related to self-catheterization.
