WHY CLOTTED BLOOD COMES IN CATHETER PIPE

My elder brother 50 years old has suffered from heart attack on 14th Jan'12. He has been discharged from hospital on 21st Jan'12 after one week medication with an instruction to take complete rest for one month. As soon as he has discharged from hospital, he developed another problem of difficulty in passing urine. Another doctor prescribed a medicine Dutas-T (Dr. Reddy's Lab) and he is on catheter now. Recently it has been seen that clotted blood comes in the catheter pipe. When this clotted blood passes from catheter pipe my brother feels very much relieved. What is this and what may be its further complications?
