Urologist Questions Urinary infections

Can adult diapers cause urine infections?

My mother is unable to urinate and is complaining of pain. Is it because we are using adult diapers for her? Can it be an infection?

There is no study that proves this to be true, but many times, I have anecdotally noticed that after incontinence surgeries the rate of UTIs per year has been reduced.
