Posterior Urethral Valves

About this Research Topic

Posterior urethral valves are the most common cause of bladder outlet obstruction in fetal life and early childhood. Even with the best of modern treatments, the condition can result in chronic renal disease in childhood and adolescence. In this Research Topic we would like to enlist experts to describe the treatment modalities and the results currently available.

Specifically we welcome papers addressing the following topics:
1. Fetal diagnosis and management;
2. Evaluation and management in the low birth weight newborn;
3. Role of vesicostomy;
4. Role of ureterostomy;
5. Evaluation and management in the term newborn;
6. Methods of valve ablation;
7. Management of bladder dysfunction;
8. Management of urinary incontinence;
9. Management of renal failure and hypertension;
10. Renal replacement therapy.


Keywords: pediatric urology, fetal bladder obstruction, childhood bladder obstruction, posterior urethral valves


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
