This piece is a slight variation on our original Short Cath 4. It is one inch shorter and the tail piece flange has been removed. It was designed for Prostate Cancer victims that are left with total urinary incontinence who want an alternative to tradional incontinence methodology. A special design idea originally requested by a customer with a prostatectomy (complete removal of the prostate).
The overall length of the sound is approximately three inches. The tip is approximately 6mm in diameter and gradually tapers up to approximately 8mm just in front of the first retention ball of 10mm. This is immediately followed by a 7mm diameter valley. The following expansion swells out to approximately 10mm at the end.
This sound is sculped to be inserted so the initial sphincter will rest in the retention valley allowing the second expansion to remain just inside the tip and on the outside to assist in easy removal. This sound can be produced using several different levels of softness for your specific level of comfort.
You can make your individual selections as to color, level of softness, and open or solid core type from the drop list boxes.
We have had favorable comments on the original Short Cath related to its function and comfort. We sincerely hope this piece will help you solve your incontinence issues in a confident and comfortable experience.
