Simplified Diagnostic Algorithm for Evaluation of Neonates With Prenatally Detected Hydronephrosis
Iranian Journal of Kidney Diseases, 07/17/2012
Assadi F et al. – The data suggest that mild to moderate unilateral or bilateral congenital hydronephrosis (CHN) rarely coexists with severe obstruction or vesicoureteral reflux. Therefore, systemic voiding cystoureterography (VCUG) and renography in such patients do not seem justified. Postnatal ultrasonography in combination with renography and VCUG is warranted in the routine examination of neonates presenting with severe unilateral or bilateral CHN.
