A randomised controlled study was carried out at HIMS Varanasi to compare the  incidence of urethritis following short –term urethral  catheterisation with either latex or silicon foley’s  catheters.
All patients had undergone open   cholecystectomy   and were catheterised  for 48-72 hours with antibiotic cover and were  followed for  3 months post-operatively.
Out of those with latex catheter 20% developed urethritis compared to 2% with silicon catheter group.  This difference is statistically significant ( p< 0.01).
