Indwelling Catheters

Transurethral lidocaine (100 mg) bladder irrigation (TULI100) reduces the incidence of catheter related bladder discomfort in transurethral resection of bladder tumors: A randomized, double blind, controlled trial.

Transurethral resection of bladder tumors (TURBT) surgeries requires post-resection catheterization for continuous irrigation of the bladder. This indwelling catheter is associated with distressing catheter-related bladder discomfort (CRBD) and increases postoperative pain and agitation.

Water vapor thermal therapy for indwelling urinary catheter removal in frail patients.

To report the efficacy and safety of water vapor thermal therapy to achieve catheter removal in frail patients with refractory acute urinary retention.

Ultrasound-guided percutaneous nephrolithotomy without indwelling ureteral catheter in older adults with upper urinary calculi: A retrospective study.

Retention of ureteral catheter to establish artificial hydronephrosis is a routine step of percutaneous nephrolithotomy procedure, which can improve the success rate of puncture, but it can prolong the procedure time and increase the risk of postoperative infection, especially for immunocompromised elderly patients.

Impact of urinary catheter on resistance patterns and clinical outcomes on complicated urinary tract infection.

Complicated urinary tract infection (cUTI) is highly prevalent and costly for health systems. The impact of the indwelling urinary catheter on etiologic agents and clinical outcomes has been poorly studied in Latin America.

Novel Care Bundle of Established Basic and Practical Approaches Greatly Reduces Urinary Tract Infections in Nursing Facility Residents without Indwelling Catheters.

Residents in nursing facilities (NFs) are at greater risk of developing urinary tract infections (UTIs) with higher hospitalizations and costs than people living in communities. These residents also have increased likelihood of uroseptic shock and death.

Urinary Outcomes after Magnetic Resonance Imaging-Guided Whole Gland Transurethral Ultrasound Ablation (TULSA) for Prostate Cancer: Comparison of Suprapubic Tube to Indwelling Urethral Catheter.

Magnetic resonance imaging-guided transurethral ultrasound ablation (TULSA) is under investigation for whole gland ablation of low and intermediate risk prostate cancer. The ideal method for post-TULSA bladder drainage via postoperative suprapubic tube (SPT) versus indwelling urethral catheter (UC) has not been established.

Efficacy and safety of prostate artery embolization for patients with lower urinary tract symptoms and indwelling urinary catheter: A retrospective multicenter study.

The purpose of this multicenter study was to evaluate the clinical success at three months of prostate artery embolization (PAE), assess PAE safety in centers with various experiences and identify factors associated with PAE success.

Budget impact analysis of a multifaceted nurse-led intervention to reduce indwelling urinary catheter use in New South Wales Hospitals.

In hospitals, catheter acquired urinary tract infection causes significant resource waste and discomfort among admitted patients. An intervention for reducing indwelling catheterisations - No-CAUTI - was trialled across four hospitals in New South Wales, Australia.

Characteristics and outcomes of hospitalised inpatients with indwelling urinary catheter-a retrospective study from a large regional hospital in queensland.

Indwelling urinary catheters (IDCs) are a common invasive device in hospitalised patients. Their use is associated with increased risks of developing catheter associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI), and blood stream infections (BSI).

Reducing CAUTI in Patients with Acute Urinary Retention in the Critical Care Setting: A Pilot Study with Electronic Medical Record Analytics.

This study implemented and evaluated an algorithm protocol for management of indwelling urinary catheters (IUCs) among patients treated for acute urinary retention (AUR) in an intensive care unit. The algorithm protocol (1) instituted in and out catheterization before placing an IUC for retention; (2) encouraged more consistent use of medications for AUR; and (3) provided for prompt removal of IUCs placed for AUR.

Impact of early postoperative indwelling urinary catheter removal: A systematic review.

Indwelling urinary catheters (IDUCs) are associated with complications and early removal is therefore essential. Currently, it is unknown what the effect of a specific removal time is and what the consequences of this removal time are.

Microbiological and microstructural analysis of indwelling bladder catheters and urinary tract infection prevention.

To analyze the microbiological and microstructural part of indwelling urinary catheters and their association with urinary tract infection prevention.

This is a cross-sectional study, from June to December 2020, in which 42 indwelling urinary catheter tips and sterile urine samples were collected for analysis of crystals in optical microscopy and biofilms in scanning electron microscopy.

A novel intervention to reduce noninfectious and infectious complications associated with indwelling urethral catheters in hospitalized older patients: a quasi-experimental study.

Indwelling urethral catheters are widely used in clinical settings. Catheter-associated urinary tract infection has been recognized as a common adverse event in older patients. However, noninfectious complications are almost 5 times as common as infectious complications, and insufficient attention has been given to noninfectious complications.

Methenamine Hippurate With Cranberry Capsules Versus Cranberry Alone for Urinary Tract Infection Prevention in a Short-Term Indwelling Foley Catheter Population After Urogynecologic Surgery: A Double-Blinded Randomized Controlled Trial.

There is little consensus on an effective nonantibiotic agent for the prevention of urinary tract infection (UTI) after pelvic reconstructive surgery.

The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of methenamine hippurate with cranberry capsules on rates of UTI after pelvic reconstructive surgery, among patients requiring short-term catheterization.

The presence of a urinary catheter is an important predictor of in-hospital mortality in internal medicine patients.

Mortality rates are used to assess the quality of hospital care after appropriate adjustment for case-mix. Urinary catheters are frequent in hospitalized adults and might be a marker of patient frailty and illness severity.

Reducing Inappropriate Urinary Catheter Use by Involving Patients Through the Participatient App: Before-and-After Study.

The risk of urinary tract infections is increased by the inappropriate placement and unnecessary prolongation of the use of indwelling urinary catheters. Sustained behavior change in infection prevention could be promoted by empowering patients through a smartphone app.

Effectiveness of nurse-targeted education interventions on clinical outcomes for patients with indwelling urinary catheters: A systematic review.

To identify subject matter, pedagogical approaches and assess outcomes of interventions implemented to educate nurses in urinary catheterisation care and management.

A systematic review was conducted according to the preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analyses (PRISMA) statement.

Using statistical process control charts to measure changes from a nurse-driven protocol to remove urinary catheters.

Implementing a nurse-driven protocol (NDP) to remove indwelling urinary catheters is a strategy to reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI). The purpose of this project was to implement a comprehensive NDP to reduce indwelling urinary catheter utilization and CAUTI rates at a large academic health system.

Resident-Related Factors Influencing Antibiotic Treatment Decisions for Urinary Tract Infections in Dutch Nursing Homes.

The aim of this cohort study was to identify resident-related factors that influence antibiotic treatment decisions for urinary tract infections (UTIs) in nursing home residents and to provide an overview of the appropriateness of antibiotic treatment decisions according to the updated Dutch guideline for UTIs in frail older adults.

Urinary tract infection in patients with hip fracture.

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a frequent complication of hip fractures. The Danish national clinical guideline for hip fracture recommends early and systematic mobilisation after surgery and that indwelling catheters are not used perioperatively.
