7 Reasons Behind Urinary Tract Obstruction!

7 Reasons Behind Urinary Tract Obstruction!

Lower Urinary tract obstruction refers to a condition of hindrance to urinary flow from bladder outwards. This can occur in all the age groups and affect either sex. The symptoms can be poor urine flow, intermittent flow, straining to pass urine or empty bladder, sense of incomplete emptying of bladder, difficulty in starting urination. Other problems can be increased urine frequency and difficulty to hold on with or without occasional urine leak in clothes. The cause and treatment vary in different age groups.

Few common reasons behind Lower urinary Tract Obstruction:

  1. Congenital Urethral Stricture and PUV: These defects can be detected either before or after birth and need correction at earliest to avoid long-term complications. It is usually brought to attention by parents who observe abnormal urine flow pattern of their child OR found out during evaluation for repeated urinary tract infections.

  2. Neurogenic Bladder: This is caused due to defects of nerves that are responsible for controlling bladder function. This can be due to diseases of brain, spinal cord or peripheral nerves. These defects can occur by birth or later in life. It is very important to take early consult to avoid long-term complications and progression to renal failure.

  3. Urethral Stricture: This is narrowing in a long tube that starts from bladder to the external urinary opening. It can be idiopathic, post-traumatic, or due to urethral infections. Usually, a person is able to recognise poor urine flow and bring it to the attention of urologist. Treatment for stricture depends on various factors and range from simple endoscopic surgery to open surgeries.

  4. Bladder Neck Obstruction: Bladder neck is a network or a group of muscles that connect the bladder to the urethra. The muscles tighten to hold urine in the bladder, and relax as they release it through the urethra. Urinary tract obstruction occurs when there are abnormalities blocking the bladder neck that restricts its opening during urination.

  5. BPH: This occurs due to enlarged prostate obstruction urine flow out of bladder. Prostate enlargement is mostly age-related and rarely due to prostatic tumors. Urinary stones. This can be usually recognized by sudden obstruction to urine flow in person who was voiding normally. These episodes might be recurrent due to movement of stone in between bladder and urethra.

  6. Bladder Tumors: The are mostly characterized by blood in urine. Sometimes there might be blood clots that obstruct the urine flow. 

  7. Phimosis: Phimosis is another major reason behind urinary tract obstructions.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My Father's kidney is failed. Its almost fail. It is just working 8-9%. What is the best treatment for that?

DNB (Nephrology), MD (Internal Medicine), MBBS
Nephrologist, Gurgaon
Dear Mr. Lybrate-user with the limited data provided it is not possible to provide a comprehensive opinion. But if the egfr of your father is 8-9% as described then it is time to consider some form of renal replacement therapy for him. The options are hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and kidney transplantation. Please get him evaluated at the earliest.

Change your food habits, plenty of fruit & vegetables, lots of fluids, avoid spicy food. Do not strain while passing stools. Apply anaesthetic jelly locally if it's very painful. If still not settling can undergo surgery.

Tips for removing kidney stones:: 1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5. Drink more if you are perspiring heavily, working outdoors, the weather is hot, etc. 6. Increase the use of barley, horse gram (a type of bean), ginger, and brown rice or parboiled rice. 7. Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate. 9. Boil 10-12 basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and take twice a day. Please send your USG report because medication for stones depends upon size number and location of stones and can be given after USG.

Dear sir, mere father ka seram creatine 6: 8 ho gya hai aise mai Kya karna chaiye koi khatre wali baat hai.
Hello lybrate-user, A serum creatinine of 6.8 is significantly higher than the upper limit of normal range. It is a marker of malfunctioning kidney and needs to be properly investigated and treated. You should consult a nephrologist in person as soon as possible. Take all reports with you when you see the doctor.

Lower urinary tracts symptoms in association with dysuria can also result from conditions like overactive bladder and interstitial cystitis. If the urine tests do not suggest infection then you may require more tests like an ultrasound of the abdomen along with assessment of post void residual urine to see if there is any stone or abnormal thickening of your urinary bladder. Subsequently some medicines to tackle your problem can be suggested.

This condition is called stress urinary incontinence. Your mother needs to be assessed by a urologist for any associated prolapse of urethra or bladder. Treatment in early stages is pelvic floor strengthening exercises (kegel's exercises) and medications. If severe, it can be cured by a minor procedure called transobturator tension free vaginal tape.
