Abstract :

 Introduction: Posterior urethral valve (PUV) is an obstructive developmental anomaly in the urethra seen in male child. Treatment of PUV needs catheterization.   Materials and Methods: Prospective study of 2 years. Total 26 cases of male newborns with PUV, All cases are catheterized with either Infant feeding tube 6FG or 8FG. First feeding tube is inserted with jelly at tip. If failed catheterization, then we attempt method of injecting jelly into urethra.  Still failed cases we introduce gloved little finger to the anus of the baby and introduce catheter. Still unsuccessful catheterization, we had cystoscopy and catheterization.   Results: Of total 26 cases, only 8 cases could be catheterize by inserting infant feeding tube with jelly at tip.  14 cases were catheterized, by injecting jelly in urethra. 2 cases needed introduction of little finger to anus. 2 cases needed cystoscopy and catheterization.   Conclusion; Introducing feeding tube with jelly at tip is having more failure rate. Injecting jelly and catheterization is the best method . In failed cases we can introduce gloved little finger to anus and catheterize. If again unsuccessful we have to do cystoscopy and catheterisation.
