Definitely stent in the tract provide nidus for the growth of germs that is the reason of recurrent infection .

It would be ideal for you that you should consult Urologist for your mother regarding her issue , because if this is not replaced than recurrent infection will effect her health badly .

So yes cause is the infective stent in the urinary tract .
