Bladder weight and detrusor blood perfusion increases significantly with infravesical obstruction (IVO) and re­lease of obstruction results in reduction of bladder weight and detrusor blood flow. 38 patients with IVO were sub­jected to color Doppler ultrasonography (CD U) to detect the blood flow in the hypertrophied detrusor muscle. Blood flow was detected in 84.5% (Fisher exact probability <0.001). After surgical relief of obstruction, blood flow remained positive in 21.05% patients at 3 months and 13.10% patients at 6 months, which was because of per­sistence of IVO. Color Doppler ultrasonography (CDU) is a simple and non-invasive tool which can help in diag­nosis and follow-up of infravesical obstruction.
