Posterior urethral valves: management

Academic Article


  • The management of 47 patients with posterior urethral valves has been reviewed. The treatment of neonates should be carried out promptly with supravesical diversion recommended as the initial treatment. Transurethral fulguration of valves often can be used as the only treatment in chidren more than 3 months old. Older patients with advanced renal obstruction may also require supravesical diversion.
