ROLE OF UTTARBASTI IN THE MANAGEMENT OF FUNCTIONAL BLADDER OUTLET OBSTRUCTION - A CASE STUDY
Bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) produces compression or resistance upon the bladder outflow channel at any location from the bladder neck to urethral meatus. It may be induced by specific functional and anatomic causes. Functional obstruction may be caused by detrusor-sphincter dyssynergia (DSD) and anatomic obstruction most commonly from benign prostatic enlargement (BPH) or urethral stricture. Obstructive symptoms include hesitancy, sensation of incomplete bladder emptying, diminished urinary stream. The combination of PVR, urinary flow measures, and symptom appraisal has been generally accepted as the initial screening and evaluation paradigm for BOO. In, Ayurveda, BOO is similar to Mutraghata means obstruction in the urine flow. Uttarbasti is the prime treatment of Mutraghata. Present case is diagnosed as a functional bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) on the basis of symptoms, normal reports of USG & ascending urethrogram and diminished flow of urine in Uroflowmetry. Total 7 Uttarbasti with 50ml Sahcharadi tailam was given along with Rasayana and Mutraghatahar medicine. Patient has complete relief in his obstructive urine complains and has normal urine flow without taking TAB AFDURA after 7 years. And also improvement appear in Uroflowmetry.
