Catheters, Rectal, Indwelling

Definition : Rectal catheters designed to be temporarily placed in the rectum during a relatively long term (e.g., several days or a few weeks). These devices typically consist of a multilumen, usually plastic catheter, whose distal tip may include an inflatable balloon. The catheter usually includes radiopaque markers, a stopcock, a retention cuff, and a connector at the proximal end to make possible the attachment of irrigation pumps and a fecal collection bag. Indwelling rectal catheters include a channel to allow feces drain to the external bag; they are mainly used as a component of a kit intended for the management of fecal incontinence but may be also used for irrigation, administration of medications, and for delivery/withdrawal of fluids to or from the distal balloon.
