Urinary tract infection is ac ondition of the presence of microorganisms in the urinary tract with the presence of bacterial colonies. The incidence of urinary tract infections occurs because the catheter has symptoms and is caused by prolonged catheterization. The purpose of this literature review study was to determine the use of long and short-term catheters in the incidence of urinary tract infections from the selected articles. This writing uses the literature review method with the library sources used are articles from 2011-2021 through a search process in pubmed, sciencedirect, and scholar with the search results obtained 10 articles that are ready to be analyze dusing JBI Critical Appraisaltools. Articles are taken from reputable or accredited databases.
