• Previous lower abdominal surgery • Unexplained haematuria • History of bladder tumour • Blood clotting disorders • Ascites • Suspicion of ovarian cyst • Silicone is semi-permeable, which may lead to deflation of the balloon. • Formation of a 'cuff' on deflation of the balloon of all silicone catheters causes difficulty in removal • Indwelling urinary catheters should not be used to monitor stable people who are able to urinate or for the convenience of the patient or hospital staff. • Catheter-associated urinary tract infection is the most common type of hospital-acquired infection. Indwelling catheters should be avoided when there are alternatives, and when patients and caregivers discuss alternatives to indwelling urinary catheters with their physicians and nurses then sometimes an alternative may be found.
