Catheters, Urinary, Urethral, Cystography
Definition : Urethral catheters designed to infuse a contrast medium in the bladder. These catheters consist of a flexible or semirigid tube with one or more openings at the distal tip; some designed for female use include a balloon at their distal tip that is placed in the bladder and another balloon that remains outside at the proximal end of the urethra. Cystography urethral catheters are used for cystography and/or radiography of the bladder and urethra during micturition voiding (voiding cystouretography), frequently to delineate abnormalities of structure or function of the bladder and urethra, including the detection of vesicoureteral reflux and stress incontinence.
