Kidney damage can now be avoided in patients suffering from uncontrolled urination or urinary disorders due to spinal cord injury. Video UDS test facility has been started at Safdarjung Hospital for the treatment of spinal cord injury or urinary disorders in women. With the help of this modern test, the disease can be easily caught. Along with this, knowing the level and cause of the disease, the doctor will be able to give treatment on that basis. Its successful trial was also done on a 22-year-old patient at Safdarjung Hospital.
About six years ago, both the legs of this patient were amputated in a train accident. He was suffering from the problem of uncontrolled urination. Investigation has revealed the cause of the disease and now it can be successfully treated. This will prevent his kidneys from getting damaged in the future. Dr Pawan Vasudev, Head of Unit 2 in Safdarjung Hospital’s Department of Urology, pointed out that till now there was no dedicated wing for urological diseases in women and patients associated with spinal cord injury.
Dedicated video UDS free test for these patients has been started at Safdarjung under this branch. This will be the first government hospital in North India. Along with this, doctors of urology from all over the country will discuss and exchange treatment methods. This will benefit patients across the country. About 3,000 such patients are treated every year in the hospital. Till now, due to non-availability of this facility at one place, patients had to wander here and there for treatment. Now this will not happen.
What is UDS test
UDS test is a special test in which with the help of modern camera it is seen how the urine bag of the patient is working. How is the pressure of the bladder? After this investigation, the exact disease can be detected, which was not possible till now.
Patients can be given advice
Proper advice can be given to the patients after the cause of the disease is known after the investigation. Which will include other advice including how to urinate. This will improve the life of the patient. Along with this, self-confidence will also wake up. After investigation, the disease will not be able to take a big form later.
Society will work in three areas
Urological Society of India (USI) will work on patients belonging to three regions. In this, dedicated work will be done for the treatment of spinal cord injury patients, congenital spinal cord problems or urinary bladder problems in pediatrics and urinary problems in women.
