Title
(EN) URETHRAL MEASUREMENT CATHETER
(FR) CATHÉTER DE MESURE URÉTRALE
Abstract
(EN)
Described is a urinary measurement catheter (UMC), which has a tube, a distal tip, a bulbar urethral anchor, and a bladder anchor, and that can be used to measure anatomical profiles of the urethra. Using the UMC according to one method comprising the following steps can be used to measure the entire urethral length: (a) insert the UMC through the urethra until the bladder anchor is positioned in the bladder; (b) pulling back on the UMC until the bladder anchor is positioned against the bladder neck; (c) mark or clamp the UMC at the meatus, or otherwise identifying the location of the UMC tube at the meatus; and (d) remove the UMC from the body and measure the distance from the location of the UMC tube as determined in step (c) at the meatus to a distal edge of the bladder anchor.

L'invention concerne un cathéter de mesure urinaire (UMC), qui comporte un tube, une pointe distale, un dispositif d'ancrage urétral bulbaire et un dispositif d'ancrage à la vessie, et qui peut être utilisé pour mesurer le profil anatomique de l'urètre. L'utilisation de l'UMC selon un procédé comprenant les étapes suivantes peut servir à mesurer la longueur urétrale totale : (a) insérer l'UMC à travers l'urètre jusqu'à ce que le dispositif d'ancrage à la vessie soit positionné dans la vessie ; (b) tirer en arrière l'UMC jusqu'à ce que le dispositif d'ancrage à la vessie soit positionné contre le col vésical ; (c) marquer ou pincer l'UMC au niveau du méat, ou autrement identifier l'emplacement du tube de l'UMC au niveau du méat ; et (d) retirer l'UMC du corps et mesurer la distance entre l'emplacement du tube de l'UMC comme déterminé à l'étape (c) au niveau du méat et un bord distal du dispositif d'ancrage à la vessie.
