Condom catheter

A urinary catheter is a small, flexible tube that is used to collect urine from the body.

Unlike other urinary catheters, a condom catheter is not inserted into the urethra. Instead, a special condom is attached to a catheter to keep the catheter in place and to collect urine. The condom catheter is used only for short periods of time.
