Can we have some objective criterias how the urinary bladder of patient of PUV will behave with increase in age?
There is a scoring system based on VUCG findings which can predict hostility of bladder in patients of PUVs.Radiological bladder abnormalities in boys with posterior urethral valves (PUV) are well recognised; however, the assessment is subjective.
The shape, wall, reflux and diverticuli (SWRD) score objectively assesses shape, wall, reflux and diverticuli in a simple way.
This study was undertaken to demonstrate that the SWRD score is reliable, reproducible and correlates with bladder outcome and videourodynamic (VUD) assessment in boys with PUV.
I will post few VCUG prior valve fulguration and few months post fulguration and later how bladder behaved in these patients.
