Bifunctional coatings for urological catheters


The use of urological catheters is associated with two main problems for the

patient - the risk of urinary tract infections (UTI) and painful urethra

microdamages arising during introduction and use of the catheter. We are

working on coatings for urological catheters surface that will ensure its

resistance to bacterial biofilm fouling and reduce the friction coefficient with the

urinary tract tissues. These coatings are intended to solve the problems of

patients using both short and long-term catheterization.
