The use of cath­e­ters in the uri­nary ­tract, ­both in chil­dren and ­adults, has not ­been with­out com­pli­ca­tions. Many pro­ce­dures per­formed in the uri­nary ­tract, in­clud­ing ure­thral or su­pra­pu­bic cath­et­er­iza­tion of the blad­der, ureth­rog­ra­phy, and uret­er­al cath­et­er­iza­tion, ­have showed com­pli­ca­tions, one of ­which is the for­ma­tion of cath­e­ter ­knots. This com­pli­ca­tion, al­though ­very ­rare, yet it is ­very an­noy­ing. In ­this ­study, we ­searched (in win­ter 2002, em­ploy­ing Medline®) and re­viewed pub­lished re­ports of uri­nary ­tract cath­e­ter ­knots, and ­present meas­ures for pro­phy­lax­is, di­ag­no­sis and prop­er man­age­ment of ­this ­rare com­pli­ca­tion.
