VALVATE VESICAL CATHETER

The invention relates to a valvate vesical catheter of the type that is formed by a flexible tube of plastic material, which is intended to be introduced through the urethra into the bladder. The distal end of the aforementioned tube terminates in a fork comprising two branches, namely a first branch which is used to inflate the balloon which stabilises the catheter in the bladder and a second branch through which urine flows. The invention is characterised in that the second urine discharge branch includes a valve element which is stably and hermetically joined to the actual catheter, said valve element comprising means which can be actuated by the patient in order to open and close same. In addition, the inventive catheter is characterised in that the valve element includes a toothed neck that can be pressure-ccupled, in a tongue-and-groove manner, to the end of the urine discharge branch. The inventive catheter is also characterised in that the valve element is inserted hermetically into the body of the distal end of the catheter which is intended to release the urine. The invention is further characterised in that the valve element is of the type that comprises a lever for actuating a rotary obturator that can rotate by''90 DEG between open and closed end positions.
