Do you want to know what a DOUBLE J CATHETER is used for?

The double J catheter consists of two J-shaped ends, which are placed in the kidney and bladder, and a tube-shaped segment that passes through the ureter.
The double J catheter is used in a variety of medical situations, such as after urological surgery to maintain patency of the ureter and allow urine to flow freely, or to treat stricture or narrowing of the ureter. It can also be used in the removal of kidney stones, relieving the obstruction temporarily and allowing the stone to be removed by natural means or by other procedures. ✅

The prostate is a gland that surrounds the urethra (the tube of the urethra) in the male genital tract. Benign prostatic hyperplasia is a fairly common condition in men.

When prostate enlargement occurs, it results in an obstruction of the urethra,, which may cause some symptoms

Thus, it is the only procedure capable of ensuring that all the abnormal adenomatous tissue causing the obstruction of the urethra is removed.

Urine flow varies throughout micturition, giving rise to characteristic curves that aid in the diagnosis of micturition problems.
