Although indwelling urinary catheters (IUCs) are used intraoperatively and may cause complications (e.g., delirium), only few robust studies have investigated the association between intraoperative IUC use and complications.
Catheter-related bladder discomfort (CRBD), an extremely distressing complication secondary to an indwelling urinary catheterization, is frequently reported in patients with transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), postoperatively.
To evaluate the recovery of early urinary continence in patients with prostate cancer using a suprapubic catheter during Retzius-sparing robotic-assistant laparoscopic prostatectomy.
From January 2018 to January 2019, 223 patients diagnosed with prostate cancer who underwent Retzius-sparing robotic-assistant laparoscopic prostatectomy in Diakonie Klinikum Stuttgart were involved in our study.
Infection and blockage of indwelling urinary catheters is significant owing to its high incidence rate and severe medical consequences. Bacterial enzymes are employed as targets for small molecular intervention in human bacterial infections.
To optimize the allocation of nursing resources, we investigate an alternative strategy for indwelling catheter cleaning.
The present study involved a total of 117 male patients and 54 female patients, who were catheterized after urinary surgery from Aug 2018 to Feb 2019.
The study evaluated the safety and advantages of no using urinary catheters (UCs) during the perioperative period in patients undergoing spontaneous pneumothorax surgery.
Forty-one patients aged 30 years or younger who underwent spontaneous pneumothorax surgery at our hospital between January 2018 and March 2020 were screened.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
