By CATHIE WALDEN ~ DAR Staff Writer
Poplar Bluff physician Dr. Sivaprasad D. Madduri of Kneibert Clinic was among the elite in his field earlier this month when he presented a paper at the American Urological Convention National Meeting in Anaheim, Calif., with about 9,000 urologists from all over the world in attendance.
The title of the paper was "Microwave Sterilization: An Effective Method for Home Sterilization of Urinary Catheters."
"I felt it was a rare honor that they accepted a paper from a small community hospital without any university affiliation," Madduri said. "
According to Madduri, the competition was extremely high. Most of the papers accepted were from university medical centers and from authors well know in their fields of specialties.
Madduri said the paper was well received at the convention. The paper was selected for the highlight section the following day.
According to Madduri, the editor of Urology Times, a nationally syndicated urology magazine, was interested in his paper.
"I was interviewed after my presentation and the paper will be published in the Urology Times soon," he said.
During the meeting Cook Urological, Inc., a medical equipment company, introduced Madduri's new catheter, called "Madduri Urethrogram Catheter."
Madduri had been working on the catheter for the past two years.
Madduri's paper was about the study of using a household microwave to sterilize special redrubber catheters.
According to Madduri's paper, disposable catheters are expensive and hard to sterilize at home.
The study was done at the then Doctors Regional Medical Center and Kneibert Clinic.
Dr. Russell Felker and his son Robert Felker from Cape Girardeau are co-authors of the study.
