Bougies, Urethra, Filiform
Definition : Extremely slender urethral bougies designed to explore and/or dilate the urethra. These manual, handheld devices are typically metallic or plastic, thread-shaped, tapered, slender solid tubes; some devices include an olive-shaped tip at the distal end. A filiform bougie may be introduced directly or via an appropriately threaded urethral catheter or bougie. The device may also be used as a guide by attaching it to the distal end of a larger-diameter bougie.
