What is a suprapubic catheter?
A Suprapubic Catheter is a urine drainage catheter which is inserted into the bladder so that urine can be drained out, usually when the normal way out for the urine is blocked. Instead of being passed up through the urethra as is usual, the supra pubic catheter is inserted through the abdominal wall just above the pubic bone and into the bladder. This is a minor surgical procedure and involves giving a local anaesthetic injected around the area before the insertion. More often, this procedure is carried out as part of a larger surgical procedure, ie. Prostatectomy, and will be inserted in the operating theatre when you are asleep. The medical term for "above" is "supra" hence Suprapubic, "above the pubic", in this case it is refering to where it is positioned. This can be a long term solution. Hope this helps.
