Hutch diverticulum


In 1961, John Hutch described a primary type of bladder diverticula.

The Hutch diverticula are:

  • intermittent, usually appear during voiding
  • located near the ureterovesical junction
  • associated with vesicoureteral reflux

VUR has always to be evaluated both in filling and in voiding.

Ureterocele is a submucosal cystic dilation of the terminal ureter, usually intravesical.
