What year was the catheter invented?

when was the catheter invented?[edit]

The Egyptians used papyrus and the Greeks used reeds. The techniques used to drain the bladder are millenia old. See Shokeir, A & Hussein M. (1999) "The urology of Pharaonic Egypt" BJUInt 84:7 aaaaaaaa.UPDATE

Franklin[edit]

The article on Ben Franklin credits him with inventing the catheter, though there's no mention of it here. Does anyone know where a source can be found on this statement, if it is indeed true? Slugmaster 19:28, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

  • I had this argument about a year ago. Hence the statement about catheters being used in the ancient world. Benjamin Franklin did NOT invent the catheter, but every time I took it out, someone felt disposed to put it back. I gave up in the end. He might have invented a latex catheter (I don't know), and that might be what they were getting at... Jfbcubed 19:56, 15 September 2007 (UTC)


Franklin Catheter[edit]

He invented the first catheter in America, which was a modification of the European version. http://library.thinkquest.org/22254/catheter.htm. --98.172.115.234 (talk) 08:21, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Amir Belson[edit]

As reported by popular science in June 2009, he has created an improved catheter. I would write about it myself, but I'm neither familiar with catheters in general nor understand his device well to offer a broad overview. I'm looking for someone who is more knowledgeable to explain it to me here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lkjhv (talkcontribs) 02:55, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
