  • Catheter balloons

    I just realized this. I had a catheter with 5ml inserted yesterday and we inserted 10ml is that going to be a problem?

    No, that is the correct method. For some reason the 5cc. is designed to be filled with 10cc.

      GJ's urologist explained that using 10cc in a 5cc balloon, it is to compensates for the fluid that remains in the inflation channel.

          I have never heard of that before but makes sense.
