Postrerior urethral valves

What is Posterior urethral valve?

PUV is a tube that drains the urine from the bladder to the outside of the body. Posterior urethral is an obstructing membrane disorder where there is more than one flap. This doesn’t allow the regular urine flow from the body. It is congenital in nature meaning a person is born with it.

In this condition, a child’s bladder, ureters and kidneys do not function well.

What Causes PUV?

  • It is a congenital related disorder

Treatment and Diagnosis

Ultrasound scan- We use this method to detect the signs of PUV in the fetus. In an ultrasound, the excess urine build is seen clearly in the kidney and bladder through its enlargement.

Renal ultrasound- This is more advanced than normal ultrasound. In renal ultrasound, a wand passes through the kidney showing its size and shape. It shows and detects any mass, cyst or abnormal growth in the kidneys.

Cystoscopy- This is the latest technique used by us to view the interior of the urinary tract system. A small tube called a cystoscope inserted in the bladder shows the image of the Urinary tract on the screen.

Non-surgical Treatment

Use of catheter- Sometimes it becomes necessary for a child to use a catheter for urine removal. A catheter is a bag inserted outside the bladder and a pipe is connected which deposits the urine in the hollow bag. A catheter bag is emptied regularly.

Surgical Treatment

Cystoscopy- This is the latest technique to correct the enlarged bladder. There is a camera with light and tools at one end. It is inserted inside the urethra to ablate the valve. This cuts the excess tissue and trims it. After this the urine flow becomes normal.

Vesicostomy- It is a process of fully emptying the urine from the bladder. A small opening is made in the bladder through the abdomen. This allows the urine to flow properly through the bladder. The doctor closes the opening when the urinary tract condition is fully healed or the child is older.
