Dear Lebone

Thank you for visiting

Essentially, the IVP is normal, except for the two ureters that unite at the level of L3. In a normal IVP, they should enter the bladder seperately. This can cause abnormal flow of urine and therefore, complications.

Please advise me about the outcome.

Kind regards

Dr Anrich Burger
