Patients with a urethral catheter can either carry the urine bag or it can be strapped to the thigh or the leg. The FlexiHang bag hanger (Flexicare, Mountain Ash, UK) is normally used for hanging the urine bag by the bedside but it can also be used to hook the urine bag to the waist belt of the trousers. The bag is tucked inside the trousers (Fig 1), allowing easy access (Fig 2). This should also help prevent ‘traumatic hypospadias’ caused by persistent pressure of the catheter on the urethra ventrally.
