Abstract

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a frequent complication of indwelling urinary catheterisation. Asymptomatic catheter-associated UTIs are commonplace and usually do not require antibacterial treatment. Symptomatic catheter-associated UTIs should be treated with directed therapy once causative pathogens are identified in urinary cultures
