      Abstract

      We attempted cystoscopy with a flexible instrument and ureteral catheter insertion in 152 supine patients. Cystoscopy was successful in 147 patients (97 per cent) and ureteral catheters were inserted in 133 (91 per cent). Examinations with this instrument are tolerated better than those with rigid cystoscopes, which may improve patient compliance with followup examinations. The current drawbacks, namely a smaller field of view, lower visual acuity and, sometimes, inadequate irrigant flow rates, may be reduced or overcome with improvements in instrument design.
