ObjectiveTo assess the long-term impacts of bladder neck incision (BNI) on continence and ejaculatory function of adults who underwent concurrent posterior urethral valve (PUV) ablation and BNI during childhood.Materials and MethodsA retrospective chart review was performed to find all adult patients with relevant history. All patients had undergone BNI at 6 o'clock proximal to the verumontanum with caution to leave the adventitia and verumontanum untouched. Charts were reviewed and attempts were made to contact those â¥18 years old for follow-up. Patients were specifically evaluated for lower urinary tract symptoms and ejaculatory condition.ResultsAmong patients treated for PUV between 1998 and 2015 in our center, 21 were â¥18 years old at the time of assessment. Until February 2016, we were able to contact 18 patients, all of whom agreed to participate. Mean age was 21.1âÂ±â2.9 years with a mean follow-up of 12.5âÂ±â4.8 years. None of those contacted had incontinence or dry ejaculations. All considered their ejaculations normal and only one complained of weak ejaculations. Four of 5 patients who consented to perform a semen analysis had normal tests and 1 had low sperm count with abnormal motility.ConclusionBNI is not associated with additional risk of incontinence and dry ejaculation in early adulthood and preserves antegrade ejaculation. Concomitant valve ablation with BNI may provide additional benefits in care of PUV children, especially those with prominent bladder neck and poor bladder function at presentation.
