Posterior Urethral Valve treatment

Posterior Urethral Valve(PUV) is a congenital condition in which membrane in the urethra (tube that drains urine from the bladder) blocks the out flow of urine. As a result of this child is not able to empty the bladder and this leads to back pressure changes causing dilation of ureter and kidneys. If not managed in time, this can eventually cause permanent renal damage and end stage renal failure.
