The BARDEX® I.C. anti-infective latex Foley catheter is clinically proven to reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections. Incorporating a technologically-advanced formulation consisting of Bacti-Guard®* silver alloy coating and BARD® hydrogel, the BARDEX® I.C. Foley catheter dramatically reduces bacterial adherence and minimizes biofilm formation.
Generally used for post-TURP hemostasis. The tip of this catheter is open (concave) to maximize drainage capacity and form a Coude curve that aids in ease of insertion and negotiatation of the prostatic curve. Three of the four lumens act as drainage conduit, inflation and deflation valve, or continuous irrigation port while the fourth lumen provides irrigation or aspiration of the surgical site. The catheter can also be used to medicate the lower urinary tract.
