Uraco permeable

Durante la evolución fetal, el uraco es un tubo que conecta la vejiga al ombligo. Después del nacimiento, el uraco normalmente se cierra y se convierte en un ligamento. Si el uraco permanece abierto se recomienda cirugía para evitar que las bacterias puedan introducirse en la vejiga y causar infección.Uraco permeable
