An Encrustation Model for Urinary Catheter Assessments

Li, Gary.

Abstract: Patients requiring long term urinary catheterization suffer from encrustation and catheter blockage, issues associated with urinary tract infections, urine reflux, and kidney failure. The encrustation model developed here establishes a high-throughput assay to evaluate comparative encrustation formation as a function of different substrates and surfaces. This design uses a peristaltic pu... read more
