She had complaints of urinary incontinence and abstained from school due to continuous leaking of urine and her education was affected.
Doctors of urology department at RGGGH diagnosed her. A CT scan and an MRI revealed that she had a rare birth defect. She had two ureters from the left kidney. One of her ureters opened to her genital organ, while the other connected normally to the urinary bladder.
A five-member team of doctors performed a surgery on the girl, where they divided the abnormal ureter. One end of it was connected to the upper portion of the regular ureter and the other end was tied up.
"We did not remove the ureter that was abnormally connecting the left kidney with the genital organ because the blood supply would be disrupted and that will cause more problems," said Dr Selvaraj.
Doctors at RGGGH performed the surgery free of cost under the chief minister's comprehensive health insurance scheme.
