4,7,30) A bladder cancer that infiltrates the urinary bladder's muscular layers might cause dilatation of a ureter (ie, hydroureter) due to obstruction at the ureterovesical
The neonatal period is when congenital anomalies of the ureterovesical
junction are likely to be identified if they were not seen in prenatal ultrasounds.
Ultrasound is good for spotting proximal stones that are larger than 5 mm, intracalyceal stones, and distal stones at the ureterovesical
Because of the fear of kidney damage due to ureterovesical
reflux in young children, the dogma has been to order imaging studies, such as ultrasound and voiding cystourethrogram (VUCG), after the diagnosis.
the urethral cotton-swab test to assess both the angle of ureterovesical
motility and also the effective urethral length (an anesthetic ointment is recommended);
Continuous antibiotic prophylaxis reduces the risk of febrile UTI in children with asymptomatic antenatal hydronephrosis with either ureteral dilation, high-grade vesicoureteral reflux, or ureterovesical
Patients with ureterovesical
obstruction were excluded.
Conventional open ureterovesical
reimplantation is the gold standard in vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) treatment and is associated with low complication rates and success rates as high as 95-98%.
CT scan abdomen was done and found to have double moiety with double ureter bilaterally, lower part of left ureter was not visible and a defect in the left ureterovesical
junctionwas noticed (Figure-1).
Magnetic resonance (MR) urogram confirmed the presence of narrowing at the ureterovesical
junction consistent with primary obstructive megaureter.
6) When ureteral tuberculosis develops, it is usually localized in the ureterovesical
junction, and furthermore, it occurs with fibrosis and contraction of the bladder wall when it is localized in the bladder.
