Does instillation of chlorhexidine into the bladder of catheterized geriatric patients help reduce bacteriuria?

Abstract

A randomized prospective trial compared the effect on the bacterial flora of the urine of the instillation of chlorhexidine or of normal saline into the bladder of two groups of elderly patients with indwelling urinary catheters. There was no reduction in urinary bacterial count in either group of patients.
