The Ugo Catheter Valve is used as an alternative to continuous drainage into a catheter leg bag. Using a catheter valve may help to maintain normal bladder function as it allows the bladder to fill and hold urine, unlike continuous drainage into a catheter leg bag or drainage bag.
A catheter valve can be used with either a urethral or a suprapubic catheter but is not suitable for all catheter users. Your doctor or nurse will be able to offer you guidance as to whether a catheter valve may be beneficial for you.
