What is a catheter?
A urologic catheter is a small tube used to drain urine from the bladder that you insert into the urethra to the bladder. This is recommended when the bladder doesn't empty on its own.
Catheters come in different brands, sizes, styles, and lengths. Three popular types of intermittent (in and out) catheters are closed system catheters, hydrophilic catheters, and intermittent catheters. Learn more about the different types of catheters by clicking the links below.
