This is a prospective, cross-over, randomized, controlled, partly blinded study evaluating safety and performance of noble metal alloy urinary Catheters (BIP Foley, Bactiguard AB) of both latex and silicone. The included patients are permanently catheterized spinal cord injured patients at the Spinalis clinic at Rehab station in Stockholm, Sweden.
Primary Outcome Measures:
• The primary objective is to evaluate the efficacy of long term suprapubic use of BIP Foley catheters, compared to the use of standard catheters for the same time period, on re-current symptomatic catheter associated urinary tract infection (CAUTIs).
Secondary Outcome Measures:
• to evaluate safety/performance of the catheter, i.e. antibiotic use, bacteriuria, bacteremia, urosepsis and ICU stay.
Exploratory Outcome Measures:
• assessment of levels of immunological markers in urine, urinary bacterial type and resistance pattern, catheter comfort, stability of the coating, and bacterial biofilm on the catheter surface after use.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Prevention
Complications; Catheter, Urinary Infection or Inflammation

The purpose of the study is to determine if the commercially available device called the DOVER™ Silver Foley catheter prevents infections of the urinary tract.
The aim of this study is to determine if the Sharklet catheter, with its unique coating, reduces infections in participants, when compared to a standard catheter.
The purpose of this study is to compare UTI rates and patient satisfaction associated with indwelling Foley catheter verses a valved catheter in patients who cannot void spontaneously imme...
The overall purpose of this study is to determine if adding oxytocin to a Foley catheter for induction of labor will increase the rate of delivery within 24 hours stratified by parity.
The aim of this study is to compare the effectiveness and safety of Foley's catheter and misoprostol in cervical ripening.

Evaluate the association between cervical examination after ripening with Foley catheter and labor induction outcomes.
Indwelling catheter placement is a modifiable risk factor for urethral trauma. We implemented a multidisciplinary Foley Project protocol in June 2015, which consisted of a system-wide catheter educati...
The prediction of successful labour induction is difficult, indicating a need for a biomarker test. Little is known about the effect of Foley catheter (FC) induction on biochemical mediators in the ce...
Nonoperative repair of occluded vessels, ducts, or valves by insertion of a balloon catheter. It is used, among other things, to treat varices, torn retinas, renal and biliary calculi, gastric, bronchial and rectal stenoses, and heart valves, and includes catheterization with Fogarty and Foley CATHETERS.

A hindrance to the passage of fluids through a CATHETER.
Infections resulting from the use of catheters. Proper aseptic technique, site of catheter placement, material composition, and virulence of the organism are all factors that can influence possible infection.
Regional infusion of drugs via an arterial catheter. Often a pump is used to impel the drug through the catheter. Used in therapy of cancer, upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage, infection, and peripheral vascular disease.
