Foley catheter may be placed to relieve the obstruction. Stents may be placed inside the ureters to allow the urine to pass directly from kidney to bladder. Draining the bladder periodically may be done to avoid the constant attacks of the urinary tract infections. The obstruction may be surgically removed and antibiotics are administered to prevent infection of any kind.
