Abstract: Nosocomial urinary tract infections arise mainly after transurethral diagnostic or therapeutic operations and are favored by the raised susceptibility of many hospitalized patients to infection. Besides strict establishment of the indication, attention must be paid above all to proper performance of the catheterization. Standardization disposable sets are helpful in this regard. Choice of the suitable catheter type depends on the requirements of the application, the duration of drainage and on the anatomical conditions. Use of a closed urine drainage system must be part of the clinical standard today as well as mastery of daily catheter hygiene. Under observation of the contraindications, advantage should be taken of suprapubic catheter drainage
