Indwelling Catheters - Bladder Catheters for the Urethrae
Transurethral indwelling catheters are placed in the bladder via the urethrae and redirect urine over a longer time frame. Bladder catheters come into use after a surgical operation with subsequent bedrest or for catheterisation of patients with longer lasting urinary incontinence. Other situations calling for catheterisation are severe urinary tract infections or long-term derivation for permanent urinary incontinence. Indwelling catheters can remain in the urethra for many weeks before they need to be replaced.
Indwelling catheters are typically single-use catheters that are individually sterile packed. So-called balloon catheters are securely fitted with an inflatable balloon in the bladder. The balloon volume of the catheter is chosen based on the anatomical circumstances so as to prevent unwanted sliding out. Modern bladder catheters are typically dual-channeled: The inner channel directs the urine, while the outer channel serves to block and unblock the catheter.
