Council Foley Catheters are most often used to treat acute retention in
emergency situations. The unique feature is the reinforced hole at the
tip of the catheter. The tip is designed to accommodate the standard
Councill tip stylet or the Heyman System Councill stylet. Once dilated, the stricture or prostate often will not stay
open, continuing to restrict or stop flow. A Councill Foley catheter
solves this problem until a surgical intervention can be performed.
This anti-infective, red latex catheter is clinically proven to
reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections. Incorporating a
technologically advanced formulation consisting of Bacti-Guard® silver
alloy coating and Bard® hydrogel, it dramatically reduces bacterial
adherence and minimizes biofilm formation.
