The Malecot catheter is a special type of urinary catheter that is used for urinary drainage in post nephrectomy patients and as a prophylactic catheter in male patients. It is made of latex, is self-retaining, and has a flower composed of four small wings at the tip, which keeps the catheter in place and prevents its accidental removal. The smooth tip and surface allow for an atraumatic and comfortable insertion for the patient. Once inserted by the physician, it remains in place for as long as needed for drainage. The opposite end of the catheter can be connected to various medical devices.
