Saudi Journal of Kidney Diseases and Transplantation, 05/16/2012Asl AS et al.
In this study, the most common cause for hydronephrosis were ureteropelvic junction obstruction and vesicoureteral reflux. Also seen in this study is the noteworthy point that mild fetal hydronephrosis is relatively benign and does not require surgical intervention in most cases and surgery should be performed only if there is renal function compromise. Prenatal consultation with a pediatric nephrologist and urologist is useful in decreasing parental anxiety and facilitating postnatal management.
