Average Customer Rating(5 ratings)
AllegroMedical.com offers Poiesis Medical Duette™ Dual-Balloon 2-way Urinary Catheter 14Fr, 10cc Retention Balloon with 5cc Bladder Protection Balloon, 100% Silicone
The Duette dual balloon, 100% silicone urinary catheter, is designed to maintain bladder mucosa integrity with its patented bladder protection balloon. Drainage eyes are located in between the retention and bladder protection balloon, designed for eliminating mucosa aspiration into the exposed drainage eyes and facilitating uninterrupted drainage.
“When sufficient damage is caused to the bladder defense mechanism……….bacterial adherence to the mucosa or exposed mucosal cell receptors occurs, and the patient develops symptomatic cystitis” Curtis Nickel, MD FRCSC and J. William Costerton PhD.
The Duette™ features three unique design elements that improve upon the Foley design:
- A second distal balloon, which is placed on the catheter tip, adds another layer in comprehensive infection control. It is designed to reduce incidents of CAUTI (catheter-associated urinary tract infection) by cushioning the tip to prevent trauma to the defensive bladder wall lining.
- The drainage eyes have been positioned between the two balloons, designed to prevent aspiration damage to the bladder’s defensive lining.
- The Duette™ is designed to be inserted and removed just like a standard Foley catheter. As a result, it requires little new training of medical personnel.

No the tip is closed. Urine drains from the eyelets between the two balloons.
