The issue of tissue reaction and it’s attendant complications associated with the use of urethral catheters made of latex material, came up for discussion at today’s morbidity meeting, department of surgery. A decision was taken that in the interim, patients be asked to buy silicon catheters from medical stores from around the hospital. It is however imperative that hospital takes the initiative to procure the silicon urethral catheters in order to shift the financial burden away from patients.
