Urinary catheterization is one of the most commonly performed procedures in healthcare. It allows the patient's urine to drain freely from the bladder and the procedure may be used for diagnostic purposes or therapeutically, for example to relieve urinary retention, instill medication, or provide lavage. During the catheterization procedure a latex, polyurethane, or silicone tube known as a urinary catheter is inserted into a patient's bladder via the urethra. While the basic principles underlying urethral catheterization are gender-neutral, this module covers the technique of male bladder catheterization.
