Treated-and-released urinary catheterization in the emergency department by sex.
The prevalence of conditions associated with urinary catheterization (UC) visits in men and women were identified. The rate of UC in treated-and-released ED visits was higher in men than women, and UC rate increased with age. The heterogeneity of conditions coded in UC visits in women compared with men may suggest more potentially avoidable UC in women in the treated-and-released ED population.
