3 way indwelling catheters
As Urologists we use 3 way indwelling catheters after Procedures to facilitate simulatnoous Irrigation along with drainage. In India, I do not know whether we are using the same make Indwelling Catheters as mentioned in the article. But we have noticed some makes are somewhat better than other makes. But unfortunately, we tend to purchase catheters not based on the quality but based on individualistic preferences and availability.
If such Changes in the lumen, irrigation and drainage properties are seen with the same size catheters studied, it must be accepted that these properties required could be more out of sync with the catheters we use.
The factors that will have to be looked at when choosing a catheter could change with the situation that it is being used. Hence the factors suggested may well be borne in mind.
With warm regards,
