Male Metal Catheter

Male Metal Catheter

The uses of Male Metal Catheter are as follows.

  • Obstruction or blockage: Male metal catheters can be used when there is a blockage or narrowing in the urethra, making it difficult to pass a standard flexible catheter. The rigid nature of a metal catheter allows for better insertion in such cases.
  • Catheterization training: Metal catheters are sometimes used in medical education and training to teach healthcare professionals or students the technique of catheter insertion.


Moreover, some potential side effects of using a Male Metal Catheter may include the following.

  • Infection: Any catheterization procedure, including the use of metal catheters, carries a risk of introducing bacteria into the urinary tract, which can lead to a urinary tract infection (UTI).
  • Discomfort or pain: Metal catheters can potentially cause discomfort or pain during insertion. Proper lubrication and gentle technique can help minimize discomfort.
  • Stricture formation: Repeated or prolonged use of metal catheters may increase the risk of urethral strictures.
  • Allergic reaction: In rare cases, individuals may have an allergic reaction to the metal used in the catheter. This can be seen as skin irritation, redness, or swelling at the catheter insertion site.

A Male Metal Catheter is also known as a metal urethral catheter or metal urinary catheter. It is a type of medical device used to drain urine from the bladder in male patients. Unlike traditional catheters made of flexible plastic or silicone, a male metal catheter is made of metal, typically stainless steel or silver alloy. Male metal catheters have a rigid and cylindrical shape, with a rounded tip and multiple drainage holes near the end. They come in various sizes to accommodate different patient anatomies.
