Abstract

People requiring long-term bladder draining with an indwelling catheter can
experience catheter blockage. Regimens involving different solutions can be used to wash out catheters with the aim of preventing blockage. Objectives were to determine if certain washout regimens (including no washout) are better than others in terms of effectiveness, acceptability, complications, quality of life and economics for the management of long-term indwelling urinary catheters in adults. We searched the Cochrane Incontinence Group Specialised Trials Register (searched 30 April 2009), MEDLINE (January 1966 to April 2009), MEDLINE In- Process (30 April 2009), EMBASE (January 1980 to April 2009) and CINAHL (December 1981 to April 2009). Additionally, we examined all reference lists of identified trials and contacted manufacturers and researchers in the field.
