Silicone catheters is a urinary catheter made entirely out of silicone. They contain no latex, which makes them ideal for people with latex allergies or sensitivities. It is a good alternative for people who suffer from latex allergies as silicone in 100% latex-free.
Silicone catheters come in many different types a and styles, including Foley, intermittent, and coude tip catheters. Silicone catheters work just like other Foley catheters. The tip is inserted through the urethra until it reaches the bladder. Small openings on the tip, called eyelets, allow urine to flow through the catheter and collect outside the body in a drainage bag or disposable receptacle.
Silicone catheters may also be used for people who experience more pain or discomfort when inserting a catheter.
A Texas catheter is a type of male external catheter used to treat urinary incontinence in men. Texas catheters differ from external condom catheters in that they usually come with a self-adhering elastic foam strap or Velcro strap that helps keep the catheter in place and not fall off during the day. The catheter is worn over the glans penis to drain the urine into a urine collection bag. As a Texas catheter is worn externally, it reduces the risk of urinary tract infections and incontinence-induced skin breakdown up to a great extent. HPFY offers a wide range of Texas catheters from various top-selling brands like Kendall, Uro-Con, etc.
Normally Texas catheters are indicated when indwelling catheters are not possible to use. These are for short-term use, as long-term use can increase the risk of UTIs and cause damage and irritation to the penis from friction with the catheter. Texas condom catheters offer enhanced comfort for many men. They have a sheath resembling a condom, making them more pliable and less likely to chafe or cause irritation. Texas catheter is indicated in the following situations:
Texas-style catheters work similarly to the way that regular external condom catheters work. Texas-style catheters are worn on the penis to facilitate urine drainage. The catheter is connected to the drainage tube, and the tubing is connected to a urinary leg bag or an overnight drainage bag. Texas catheters do not help with urine retention. If you cannot pass urine naturally, a Texas catheter will not work for you.
