Global Foley Catheters Market

Foley catheters are the most commonly used devices for managing urinary incontinence. The design of Foley catheters has not fundamentally changed over the time, although device manufacturers have introduced several modification to lessen the risk of trauma and infection associated with Foley catheters. Improvements in materials have been made from the original latex rubber to silicone and a variety of coatings such as Teflon and hydrogel have been used. The size and shape of the drainage eyes have been modified to enhance urine flow and reduce clogging. Antiseptic and antibiotic coatings on catheters have also been applied to combat the bacteria introduced into the bladder by the catheter. However, the results of these changes have been inconclusive and the design of the Foley catheter is believed to be a major cause for many of the complications, including urinary tract infections (UTIs), bladder spasms, cystitis, and possibly an increased risk of bladder cancer.
