Straight Tipped Catheters

Straight tip catheters are tapered at the end so that they can pass smoothly through the urethra. They are the simplest form of intermittent catheters and are different from others just because of the shape of the tip. The rest of the features of this catheter depend on whether they are coated, non-coated, pre-lubricated catheters.
