More On Covidien Dover Two-Way Silicone Foley Catheter

  • What is the benefit of having a silicone Foley catheter versus a latex Foley catheter?
    - The advantage is the silicone material. Silicone is biocompatible. It is non-reactive to human tissue. Silicone is inorganic which is man-made, inert, and contains no extractable chemicals or proteins. Latex is an organic material that also contains numerous extractable chemicals and proteins which act as a good source for bacterial growth. Silicone is non-adherent. It repels urine, water, blood, and most organic materials to reduce the incidence of bacterial attachment and growth. Silicone is non-porous so it does not absorb body fluids. It eliminates "Foley Catheter Expansion" whereas latex is porous (acts like a sponge). Silicone is also 100% latex-free.

  • Do silicone coated latex Foley catheters share the same benefits of the Dover 100% Silicone Foley catheter?
    - No. Silicone coated latex Foley catheters still utilize a latex platform and do not share the same benefits of a true, 100% silicone catheter. Silicone coated catheters do not eliminate hypersensitivity concerns because they are still comprised of latex.

  • Is silicone still considered stiff and uncomfortable?
    - Silicone actually warms to the body;s temperature and eventually molds to the shape of the urethra making it more flexible and comfortable.
