Adverse Events Caused by Urinary Catheterization Endanger Patient's Health Costing the US Health Care System Billions
Date:8/15/2012

FLORIDA, Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Poiesis Medical has unveiled the first urinary catheter designed to address the risks associated with urinary catheterization. The traditional Foley catheters used today are clinically proven to cause trauma to the bladder; creating significant complications such as cystitis, hematuria, CAUTI (catheter associated urinary tract infections), and in long term catheter users, an increased risk of bladder cancer. The CDC estimates CAUTI alone increases treatment costs between $1 and $3 billion annually.

The Duette™ represents the first advancement in urinary catheter design and function in 75 years. It is the world's first twin-balloon, zero-tip urinary catheter. The Duette™ is designed to eliminate the bladder trauma caused by traditional Foley catheters. By utilizing a second balloon that subsumes its tip, the Duette™ cushions the bladder wall during drainage and protects the bladder's mucosal lining, its natural bacterial defense.

The introduction of the Duette™ Bladder Care Catheter will offer health care providers a non-traumatic alternative when patient catheterization is necessary.
