- Editorial comment on: Primary ablation versus urinary diversion in posterior urethral valve: Systematic review and meta-analysisJournal of Pediatric Urology
- PreviewThe congenital valve in the posterior urethra seems to be a very small lesion that can be so easily removed, and yet the long-term consequences of its presence in utero can be devastating, or even fatal. Ever since its first definition in 1802, it has been associated with renal failure. Over many years, urologists at Toronto Children's Hospital have emphasised the relationship of the ‘valve bladder’ with renal failure, and even the destruction of transplanted kidneys.
