What is Urine Foley

Urine Foley or also known as foley catheterization is the procedure of insertion of a catheter from the urethra up to the bladder for draining out the urine.

The urine foley catheter can also be inserted by making a small hole near the patient’s abdomen.

Indwelling Catheter

The apparatus that is used for this type of catheterization is called “Indwelling catheter”. Indwelling means to remain inside. This catheter is also named “Foley Catheter”.

That’s why the end of the catheter that remains inside the patient’s bladder is fixed with an inflated balloon. So, the catheter doesn’t slide or fall from the bladder.

The balloon is filled with water. So, when the balloon deflates it’s a clear sign of removal of the catheter.

Why Use Urine Foley & For Whom?
