External Female Urinary Catheter: Implementation in the Emergency Department.

The emergency department is a care environment in which indwelling urinary catheters are placed frequently; however, the significance of the role of the emergency department in catheter-associated urinary tract infection prevention has been overlooked.

Pull the Foley: Improved Quality for Middle-Aged and Geriatric Trauma Patients Without Indwelling Catheters.

Urinary tract infection (UTI) complications are often attributed to the inappropriate use of urinary catheters.

We sought to examine the effectiveness of a hospital-wide policy aimed at reducing the use of indwelling Foley catheters.

Halo artifacts of indwelling urinary catheter by inaccurate scatter correction in 18F-FDG PET/CT imaging: incidence, mechanism, and solutions.

Halo artifacts from urinary catheters can occur due to inaccurate scatter correction, and the artifacts affect the tumor visibility in 18F-FDG PET/CT images. We investigated the incidence rate and the mechanisms of halo-artifact generation and explored several scatter correction techniques to prevent artifacts.

Indwelling urinary catheterization was unnecessary in non-drainage total knee arthroplasty: a randomized controlled trial.

To investigate whether catheterization remains necessary in non-drainage total knee arthroplasty (TKA) using combined spinal epidural anesthesia (CSEA) with a short-acting opioid by comparing (1) incidences of postoperative urinary retention (POUR), and (2) postoperative clinical outcomes between retained urinary catheter (UC) and non-retained urinary catheter (non-UC) groups.

A prevalence survey of patients with indwelling urinary catheters on district nursing caseloads in the United Kingdom: The Community Urinary Catheter Management (CCaMa) Study.

Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is common in both hospitals and the community.

To investigate the prevalence of indwelling urinary catheters on district nursing caseloads in the UK.

Supply the demand: Assessment of the feasibility of local non-urologists in relieving the burden of chronic indwelling catheters in a low-income country.

Despite the high prevalence rates of urinary retention in sub-Saharan Africa, regional deficiencies in urological care have culminated in inadequate medical management, and a backlog of urology cases.

Managing complications associated with the use of indwelling urinary catheters.

The insertion of an indwelling urethral urinary catheter is an invasive procedure that is commonly undertaken in healthcare settings. However, there are several risks and potential complications associated with these devices, so their use should be avoided where possible.

The impact of educational interventions for patients living with indwelling urinary catheters: A scoping review.

Aim: To explore the impact of educational interventions for patients living with indwelling urinary catheters. Methods: Systematic scoping review in accordance with PRISMA guidelines, guided by Cochrane methodology, quality appraisal using Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine (CEBM) Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI), GRADE criteria and Quality Improvement Minimum Quality Criteria Set Version 1.

Maintenance of indwelling urinary catheters with a novel polyhexanide-based solution: user experience.

Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) can significantly affect patients' quality of life and increase healthcare costs.

This study aimed to capture patients' and nurses' experience of catheter maintenance using a polyhexanide-based solution (PS) in everyday practice.

Care of patients undergoing the removal of an indwelling urinary catheter.

An indwelling urinary (Foley) catheter may be used in the management of various urological conditions, such as intractable incontinence and urinary retention, or as part of treatment regimens such as chemotherapy.

An Examination of the Barriers to and Facilitators of Implementing Nurse-Driven Protocols to Remove Indwelling Urinary Catheters in Acute Care Hospitals.

Urinary catheter nurse-driven protocols (UCNDPs) for removal of indwelling urinary catheters (IUCs) can potentially prevent catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs). However, they are used inconsistently.

A strategy to control colonization of pathogens: embedding of lactic acid bacteria on the surface of urinary catheter.

Indwelling urinary catheterization is one of the major causes of urinary tract infection (UTI) in hospitalized patients worldwide. A catheter serves as a surface for the colonization and formation of biofilm by UTI-related pathogenic bacteria.

A systematic review comparing early with late removal of indwelling urinary catheters after pelvic organ prolapse surgery.

An indwelling catheter is routinely used after pelvic organ prolapse surgery to prevent urinary retention. However, the timing of catheter removal remains controversial.

To investigate the optimal timing of catheter removal following prolapse surgery.

[Applying Team Resource Management to Reduce the Urinary Catheter Usage Rate in Our Intensive Care Unit].

According to the literature, 74%-84% of patients in adult critical care units have an indwelling catheter. The majority of medical and healthcare infections are urinary tract infections, which are related to urinary catheter usage.

Early removal of indwelling urinary catheter after radical surgery for early-stage cervical cancer-A cohort study.

To evaluate the difference between early and delayed removal of indwelling urinary catheter after radical hysterectomy (RH) or radical trachelectomy (RT).

An ambispective study was conducted in early-stage cervical cancer patients who underwent RH or RT.

How common are indwelling devices in hospitalized adults? A contemporary point prevalence study in a tertiary care hospital.

Healthcare associated infections are associated with indwelling devices. Yet, data regarding prevalence of indwelling devices in noncritically ill hospitalized patients remains scant.

Adult, noncritically ill patients on general care, telemetry, and surgical floors at our quaternary care hospital were surveyed on 2 separate days.

A urinary catheter valve is non-inferior to continuous bladder drainage with respect to post-operative UTIs: a randomized controlled trial.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common with indwelling catheter use. Our primary aim was to compare UTI rates in women sent home after surgery with continuous bladder drainage versus a urinary catheter valve.

Tolerability and safety of urotainer® polihexanide 0.02% in catheterized patients: a prospective cohort study.

In patients with indwelling bladder catheters for > 2 weeks, bacterial colonization is inevitable, leading to urinary tract infections or encrustations with subsequent catheter blockage.
