Title (EN) VALVE OPERATED CATHETER FOR URINARY INCONTINENCE AND RETENTION
(FR) CATHETER COMMANDE PAR SOUPAPE POUR LA RETENTION ET L'INCONTINENCE URINAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) A valve operated catheter for urinary incontinence and retention comprises a flexible duct (2) designed to be inserted in the patient's urethra, provided with a spiral shaped end portion (12), having a plurality of holes (16) for the passage of urine, said duct (2) is provided, in correspondence with the other end, with a seat (21) in which there is housed a valve (20) made of elastic material, that is usually closed because of the elastic action; the valve (20) may be operated by the patient through light compressive action on two winglets (25) which are fixed to the end of the duct near to the valve and positioned symmetrically to the longitudinal axis of the same valve, outside the top of glans in such a way as to cause the opening of the passage (22) because of the elastic deformation of the valve (20).
(FR) Un cathéter commadé par soupape, pour la rétention et l'incontinence urinaire comprend un tube souple (2) conçu pour être introduit dans l'urètre du patient, et pourvu d'une partie terminale en forme de spirale (12) comportant une multiplicité de trous (16) destinés au passage de l'urine. Le tube (2) est pourvu d'un siège (21) correspondant à l'autre extrémité, et dans lequel est logé une soupape (20) composée d'un matériau élastique, qui est généralement maintenue fermée par la force élastique; la soupape (20) peut être actionnée par le patient par une légère compression exercée sur deux ailettes (25) fixées à l'extrémité du tube proche de la soupape, et placées de façon symétrique par rapport à l'axe longitudinal de la soupape, à l'extérieur du sommet du gland, de manière à ouvrir le passage (22) par la déformation élastique de la soupape (20).
