Learning Objective 1: The learner will be able to understand the prevalence of urine retention within eight hours after Hemorrhoidectomy.
Learning Objective 2: The learner will be able to know the effectiveness of Crede’s method on urine retention among post Hemorrhoidectomy recipients.
Methods: This was an experimental, randomized study design. All participants were over 20 years of age and had undergone a haemorrhoidectomy. Outcome measurements included patients reported urine voiding status, personal demographics, and disease related data. Before surgical procedure, participants were distributed into either a crede’s group (n=23) or a non-crede’s group (n=23). Patients in the crede’s group were taught the method of crede’s when their urine can not void within eight hours after haemorrhoidectomy. The non-crede’s group patients were taught the traditional methods but crede’s. We examined urine retention rate at eight hours after haemorrhoidectomy.
Results: The urine retention rate was 8.7% (2/23) in crede’s group and 69.6% (16/23) in non-crede’s group. After controlled two groups personal characteristics and disease related variables, the Chi-square test showed that patients in the crede’s group were had a lower urine retention rate when compared with non-crede’s group, and revealed significant differences(χ2 = 17.89, p < .001).
Conclusion: This study demonstrated that crede’s method is an effectiveness strategy on urine retention among patients after haemorrhoidectomy. Clear and concise information related the urinary retention and related strategy should addresses to patients before procedure.
