Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the most common hospital acquired infection. The major associated cause is indwelling urinary catheters. Currently there are many types of catheters available. A variety of specialized urethral catheters have been designed to reduce the risk of infection. These include antiseptic impregnated catheters and antibiotic impregnated catheters. Other issues that should be considered when choosing a catheter are ease of use, comfort and cost. 
Types of indwelling urinary catheters for long-term bladder drainage in adults.
TLDR
The primary objective was to determine which type of indwelling urinary catheter is best to use for long-term bladder drainage in adults, and the evidence was not sufficient as a reliable basis for practical conclusions.
Types of indwelling urinary catheters for long-term bladder drainage in adults.
TLDR
The primary objective was to determine which type of in-dwelling urinary catheter is best to use for long-term bladder drainage in adults to address the current lack of evidence in this clinically important area.
Effective evidence-based catheter management: an update.
TLDR
The clinical indications for urinary catheterization, the importance of appropriate product selection, and acting to reduce the risk of infection are explored.
Provisional chapter Prevention of Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections
TLDR
Designing an effective strategy for prevention of CAUTI presupposes an in depth knowledge of epidemi‐ ology, pathogenesis, microbiology and risk factors for all medical personnel.
The use and management of closed urinary catheters
TLDR
The literature available, both human and veterinary, relating to urinary catheterisation and the methods of collection is explored, and recommendations for the use of urinary catheters and closed-collection systems in veterinary practice in an effort to reduce the number of CAUTI cases are provided.
Providing effective evidence-based catheter management.
TLDR
Catheter-related problems provide nurses with the opportunity to evaluate the clinical indications for continued catheterization and to remove catheters that are not clinically indicated.
Comparison of catheter-associated bacteriuria and urinary tract infections between designed sheathed urethral catheters versus other methods of urinary drainage
TLDR
The frequency of bacteriuria in the patients with designed sheathed catheter was significantly less than the traditional catheter, therefore, using the designed catheter in short-term may be safer in the Patients.
Urinary Catheters, Design, and Usage
Urinary catheters are perhaps the most frequently used piece of urological technology and, after IV cannulas, are the most frequently deployed device in an acute hospital setting; typically, a fifth

Types of urethral catheters for management of short-term voiding problems in hospitalised adults.
TLDR
The results of this trial indicated benefit from the silver alloy catheters and included an economic analysis that indicated cost savings of between 3.3 per cent and 35.5 per cent.
Incidence and importance of bacteriuria in postoperative, short-term urinary catheterization.
TLDR
It appears that the risk of symptomatic bacteriuria in this group of patients is very low when a closed urinary drainage system is used under strict, sterile conditions of catheter insertion and with meticulous ongoing catheter care.
Engineering out the risk for infection with urinary catheters.
TLDR
Novel urinary catheters impregnated with nitrofurazone or minocycline and rifampin or coated with a silver alloy-hydrogel exhibit antiinfective surface activity that significantly reduces the risk of CAUTI for short-term catheterizations not exceeding 2-3 weeks.
[Clinical study on efficacy of a Foley catheter coated with silver-protein in prevention of urinary tract infections].
TLDR
A Foley catheter coated with silver-protein (ProAg catheter) significantly reduced the incidence of extraluminal catheter-associated bacteriuria compared with usual latex FoleyCatheter, and may be useful as an indwelling urethral catheter.

TLDR
The aim of this article is to provide information that will clarify some of the concerns nurses might have regarding urethral catheterisation.
Silver alloy coated catheters reduce catheter-associated bacteriuria.
TLDR
There was a statistically significant difference in the incidence of catheter-associated bacteriuria in the 2 groups after 6 days' catheterisation: 6 patients with the silver coated catheter developed bacterirosis compared with 22 who had the Teflonised latex catheter, suggesting that the silver impregnated urethral catheters reduce the incidence.
Prevention of catheter-associated urinary tract infection with a silver oxide-coated urinary catheter: clinical and microbiologic correlates.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that several clinical variables influenced the incidence and microbiology of catheter-associated UTI and that the silver catheter appeared to prevent UTI among women not receiving antimicrobials.
A comparative multicentre study on the incidence of catheter-associated urinary tract infection between nitrofurazone-coated and silicone catheters.
The potential clinical and economic benefits of silver alloy urinary catheters in preventing urinary tract infection.
TLDR
Using silver alloy catheters in hospitalized patients requiring short-term urinary catheterization reduces the incidence of symptomatic UTI and bacteremia, and is likely to produce cost savings compared with standard catheppers.
Catheter-induced urethritis: a comparison between latex and silicone catheters in a prospective clinical trial.
TLDR
Of those with latex catheters 22% developed urethritis, compared with 2% of those in the silicone catheter group, and this difference is statistically significant (P less than 0.01).
