To explore the new catheter-special pants design and the application for patients with indwelling catheter after transurethral prostate resection, 156 patients after transurethral prostate resection were divided into two groups randomly: experimental group wearing newly designed pants and control group wearing normal pants after transurethral prostate resection; to compare the state of restlessness and the times patients tearing the catheter secondary fixation tape and pulled out personally unplanned. Experimental group wearing newly designed pants showed only one case of catheter pulled out, none of fixation tape was teared, while in the control group, 9 cases of catheter were pulled out personally, 21 cases of tape teared, causing some degrees of urethral injury, delayed the retention time of catheter. There were significant differences between the two groups. The application of newly designed pants shielding the catheter decreases the incidence of catheter pullout after transurethral prostate resection surgery, avoids urethral injury and increased the retention time, improves the functional recovery with no increased cost, which is worth promoting the application in ordinary clinical nursing.
