Bladder weight was estimated by transabdominal ul­trasonography in 40 patients with infravesical obstruc­tion and in 10 control subjects without any infravesical obstruction. In obstructed group bladder weight was raised to 95.20 + 24.24 gms. compared to control group, where it was 35.44 + 4.27 gms. After three months of surgical relief of obstruction bladder weight came down to control range in 57.50% cases and after six months it reversed to normal weight (up to 40 gms) in 90% cases. In the re­maining 10% cases where it remained greater than nor­mal bladder weight persistent causes of obstruction were found. Ultrasound estimated bladder weight not only helps in diagnosis of infravesical obstruction but also helps to monitor the success of surgical treatment in bladder out­flow obstruction.
