Definition : Catheters designed for introduction through the vagina and cervix into the uterus; some of them are long enough to make possible the advance and location of their distal tip in the fallopian tubes. Intrauterine catheters are usually made of polyurethane or silicon rubber. These catheters are used in many gynecologic and/or obstetric procedures (e.g., radiography, insemination, ablation, pressure measurement).
