Foley (Indwelling) Catheters

University Health Network - Toronto Rehab

A Foley (indwelling) catheter is a thin tube that is inserted into your bladder. It stays in your bladder for up 4 weeks at a time to drain urine. Foley catheters are often only used for short periods of time. When other options don’t work, they can be the main way you empty your bladder.
