Posterior Urethral Valve fulguration


The position of the posterior urethral valve can be explained as a small leaflet like tissue in the urethra, with a narrow slit-like opening that causes to prevent the backflow of urine which ultimately causes harm in urethra, bladder, ureter, and kidney. Fulguration of the valve is performed which is a minimally invasive method that only requires a small incision at the site. Endoscopic fulguration is equipment with a small and flexible tube along with the camera and lens at the end which is beneficial for trimming down the excess tissues of the valve.
