Dover Foley Catheter Silicone Coated
Foley catheters have often been used for labor induction as a means of rippening and dilating the cervix. In order to achieve this, the tip is placed into the opening of the cervix, and the balloon is gently inflated. The balloon places an even amount of pressure on the cervix with the intetion of releasing local prostaglandins that can ripen the cervix. For some women, the catheter will induce contractions and in other situations it may dilate the cervix anywhere from 3 cm to 4 cm.
