Foley Catheters Market In-Depth Analysis By
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 Foley catheter design 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.
