I had a ultrasound of my bladder and kidneys and the report said "Unremarkable Scan" but it said "under-distended bladder" so would they see that ok?

It depends: How under distended the bladder was and what your clinician was looking for. If your doc was looking for things like bladder outlet obstruction, an undistended bladder pretty much rules that out. If they are looking for things like bladder wall thickening, a collapsed bladder might make that impossible to see. But if the bladder is at least partially distended, usually the scan is ok. ...Read more

Bladder (Definition)

The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more

No: Papillary thyroid cancer if removed and treated by an endocrinologis tis of no concern. Pelvic phleboliths are common. As far as the bladder issue you may want to discuss with your doctor ...Read more

What does a distended bladder in a fetus mean?

What does a distended bladder in a fetus mean?

Full bladder: It means that the bladder is full. When the fetus empties the bladder, that fluid is the called amniotic fluid. In rare cases the fetus cannot empty the bladder. Then the bladder becomes over distended which can damage the bladder. The pressure in the bladder can also lead to fetal kidney damage. ...Read more

How much urine can a massively distended bladder hold?

Liters: A normal bladder would be massively distended with 1000 ml urine. I have seen abnormally distended bladders such as chronically distened from obstruction, with hypotonic neurogenic bladder, after intestinal bladder augmentation or prune belly syndrome hold in xs of 2000 ml. ...Read more

Is there any surgical procedure to treat distended bladder and bladder not emptying problems?

Is there any surgical procedure to treat distended bladder and bladder not emptying problems?

Need attention: It depends on the cause. Like in older men with enlarge prostate (bph), then surgery is an option, but if it is due to spinal cord damage (neurogenic bladder) I do not think that if surgery is an option.
Talk to a urologist. ...Read more

35 wk usg femalefoetus shows over distended bladder with kidneys normal amniotic fluid normal. Is there any problem, prior tiffa normal.

35 wk usg femalefoetus shows over distended bladder with kidneys normal amniotic fluid normal. Is there any problem, prior tiffa normal.

Baby full bladder: Most likely if the kidneys look normal and the amniotic fluid is normal, all is well. Usually we'd repeat the ultrasound again later to see if the baby emptied in the meantime or not. If there was a blockage of the urine outflow from the bladder, the amniotic fluid level would not be normal, it would be very low. ...Read more

31 weeks ultrasound, fetus showed a clearly distended bladder, no dilation in kidneys n amniotic pool was good. Ultrasound repeated next day showed same?

31 weeks ultrasound, fetus showed a clearly distended bladder, no dilation in kidneys n amniotic pool was good. Ultrasound repeated next day showed same?

Not necessarily: At this time during fetal development, the urine output is very large. This large volume may give the appearance of a distended bladder. It is reassuring that the kidneys are not dilated and that the amniotic fluid is normal. It would be desirable to know the gender of the baby prior to recommending additional imaging which would have to start with an ultrasound study shortly after birth. ...Read more

What is the cause of a distended gall bladder?

Depends: Your gallbladder will be distended when you are not eating. It fills with bile and then, when you eat, it empties. This is not a problem. It is normal physiology. The problem happens when your gb is obstructed by a stone or inflammation and cannot empty. This can lead to infection and severe pain, fevers, etc. If you have no stones on ultrasound you may need a hida to see how ur gb empties. ...Read more

I am 67 years old person having an enlarged prostate problem. Recent sonography report is as follows: " urinary bladder is well distended. It show?

Need surgery...: At this time, your condition is well beyond what drugs can do and surgery to release prostate obstruction is the choice. Today, laser prostate procedure (pvp) is a very safe effective procedure with minimal risk under experienced hands. Of note, I'm sure that you have noted your progressive slowing urine flow has slowly developed over the past 10-20 yrs. So, see and ask doc, but listen to him/her. ...Read more
