OPTION-vm Valved Male Urinary Catheter
Company : Opticon Medical
UMDC Code : 451985
The key advantages of the OPTION-vm catheter are derived from the main concept of using the bodys own bladder to store urine rather than a collection bag. When the bladder needs to be drained, the patient or caregiver merely activates a specially designed and patented valve that permits convenient draining in a manner very similar to normal voiding. Messy, cumbersome, and costly external tubing and urine collection bags are not necessary with the Practica device as compared to the Foley catheter system. The elimination of the urine collection system removes the urine bag as a potential source of infection, and may reduce the occurrence of accidental balloon dislodgement and traction- related urinary system trauma caused by collection system accidents.
