Home > Health Library > Condom catheter for men
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.
