Why do you need a coude catheter?

For men using a catheter is a little different from women.  Men have more obstacles in their urethra than women when inserting a catheter.  Some men are able to use a straight catheter while other men may require the use of a curved tip catheter or Coude Catheter.  The reason is they may have an obstruction in the urethra like an enlarged prostate that makes it difficult to bypass the prostate.  This is why the coude catheter is a great solution for men that require the use of intermittent catheters.  Because of the curved tip it allows the catheter to gentle curve around the prostate while being inserted.

Most manufacturers make a curved tip or coude catheters.  It is up to the patient to decide what the best coude tip catheter is for them.  Summit Xpress Medical Supply provides one of the largest assortments of coude catheters.  They come in PVC, vinyl, silicone, and latex.  So it important to try these to see which is most comfortable to you!

They also come in hydrophilic, pre-lubricated, non-lubricated, and closed systems.
