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.
