Question
Posted by: Hendrik | 2008/06/04

35 week old unborn has Hidronefrose

During a routine pregnancy sonar [35 weeks] the gynicologist found that my babies kidney pipes to his bladder is almost blocked.
We went for second opinion and it was confirmed.
My question is: How will it be treated and is it cureable?

Dear Hendrik
The most common cause for this is just the valve between the bladder and the ureter not closing properly. In most kids they "outgrow" this and they just need regular follow up and sonars. They may be more prone to urinary tract infections and may get "colic" because the urine pushes back into the kidneys when the bladder is full. If it does not improve on its own they can remedy this by injecting a small amount of teflon in the area of the valve, helping it to close better. This they do under anaesthetic and through a scope, so no cutting involved.
