A 6-F guiding catheter (Envoy[R], Codman division of Johnson & Johnson Medical Ltd., Wokingham, Berkshire, UK) was catheterized
and reserved in the right cervical vertebral artery.
We selectively catheterized
and performed angiography at all arteries that maybe feeding vessels prior to embolization.
angiography may be preferred in cases with strong clinical suspicion; it can also allow balloon angioplasty and stent replacement as treatments with lower complication rates.

Based on a study we previously published, we thought there would be a lower percentage of positive urine cultures in the catheterized
group, and subsequently, a lower rate of antibiotic use (Shalom et al., 2014).
The mean birth weight and gestational age at delivery of twins in the catheterized
group were 2085 g and 34.6 weeks, respectively; in the non-catheterized group, these values were 2200 g and 35 weeks, respectively (p=0.65).

Among the 275 hospital-acquired cases of UTI selected for the study, 165 were catheterized
(60%) and 110 were not catheterized
He was catheterized
on day 1 as he revealed difficulty in passing urine with urinary retention.
White Plains Hospital had a surge in its annual inpatient census since 2010; despite the increased number of patients catheterized
per month, the time Foley catheters remained in place, or dwell time, decreased.
In addition, results for voided urine and catheterized
urine specimens in this study were better than those of bladder washing specimens for the negative reference diagnoses (P < .001).
Because the greatest risk factor for development of CAUTI is duration of catheterization, ICU patients are at particular risk because they are typically catheterized
for extended periods (Jansen et al., 2012; Meddings et al., 2014).
