Urinary tract infection occurs in one in five patients as a complication following severe trauma. A new and approved urinary bladder catheter (Releen NF) has been introduced by the Danish company Coloplast A/S. Releen NF is expected to reduce the number of urinary tract infections, but this effect has not been investigated in trauma patients.
