ABSTRACT: We have reviewed 130 patients of posterior urethral valves in a single center in Kolkata over the last 4 years. Primary endoscopic valve ablation was performed in 104 patients(80 percent). Diversion was required in 19 (14.6 percent) patients who were not fit for primary valve ablation. Four did not improve after valve ablation and required diversion. Three more cases were referred to us after vesicostomy done elsewhere. One neonate expired due to septicemia. In comparison to our earlier report, the rate of diversion in our center is steadily declining and more and more neonates are being treated by primary valve ablation.
