The Suprasoft catheter is unique by design and by application. This is double balloon catheter is for suprapubic catheterisation and was TGA approved for use in Australia early 2018.
The Suprasoft catheter option limits sediment blockage commonly associated with traditional catheters and instead offers continuous drainage by a large drainage eyelet between the two balloons. The second balloon of the Suprasoft catheter can prevent bladder irritation, potentially preserving the mucosa of the adjacent bladder wall and can reduce pain in those that have experienced the like.
The technique for the Suprasoft catheter requires a slight adjustment from existing exchange methods to accommodate the second balloon inside the bladder. The figures below summarise this technique. The Suprasoft catheter should be exchanged by a trained health care professional.
