Coude-tipped catheters are used to navigate the male urethra, particularly when a stricture is present. The Olive coude of this model features a slightly larger bulb at the tip to assist in negotiation of restrictions.
The Bardex I.C. anti-infective latex Foley catheter is clinically proven to reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections. Incorporating a technologically-advanced formulation consisting of Bacti-guard* silver alloy coating and Bard hydrogel, the Bardex I.C. Foley catheter dramatically reduces bacterial adherence and minimizes biofilm formation. Used for post-TURP hemostasis with a medium length tip with 2 staggered eyes. The staggered eyes help maintain tip strength for ease of insertion. A short profile, round balloon delivers pressure to the prostate under traction to arrest post-surgical bleeding with minimal shape deformation.
