MTG Cath-Lean® Makes Self-Catheterization Easier
Until recently, women used the same urinary catheter as men, particularly with an intermittent catheter within a bag. We are proud to offer MTG Cath-Lean®, a uniquely female bag catheter, affording infection protection. Recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) can be life-threatening. Know that MTG Cath-Lean® provides UTI defense via the introducer tip, protecting the tube from bacteria located within the distal urethra. Potential contamination is also reduced since the sterile tube is passed from within the sterile collection bag and into the bladder without coming in contact with the fingers, gloves, etc.

If dexterity limitations are an issue, MTG Cath-Lean® includes our patented EZ-Advancer® valve so as you advance the tube, it remains stable. Squeezing is not required to prevent the tube from slipping back. Each 6” long, 12 or 14 Fr. catheter includes our smooth, polished eyelets for maximum comfort. MTG Cath-Lean® is 100% latex-free, and the catheter tube is DEHP and BPA free.
