The general evidence level on successful use of intermittent catheterization is extensive and includes several types of diagnoses whereof BPH is described as one common reason for therapy.

Specific studies in BPH with regard to intermittent catheterization in general, and comparisons between intermittent and indwelling catheterization in particular, are few but the results are considered to be in line with the general finding, i.e. that intermittent catheterization is a safe, and effective treatment option for both short and long-term bladder management and that it is the first and preferred choice over urethral/suprapubic indwelling catheters.
