The Urethral Cure Catheter™ 14Fr Straight Tip Uncoated Intermittent catheterization is the periodic emptying of the bladder by the insertion of a hollowplastic tube (catheter) into the urethra, past the sphincter muscles and into the bladder. Urine then passes out of the bladder through the catheter.
Urethral Cure Catheter™ Intermittent catheterization is used when a person is unable to empty his bladder. Medical conditions that often require intermittent catheterization include spinal cord injuries, spina bifida and multiple sclerosis, to name a few. Must be done at regular intervals each day to keep the bladder healthy.
Your health care provider has recommended clean self catheterization to help empty your bladder and keep your urinary system healthy.
