Hydronephrosis is the dilation of kidney.It could be due to anatomic abnormality or due to obstruction at the level of the kidney UPJ or at the level of the bladder- UVJ.
In majority cases it resolves on its own.Regular scans to monitor babys kidneys and amniotic fluid levels will be done
Early detection and treatment can help avoid urinary tract information and kidney damage.
Few more tests will be advised by your doctor to rule out any chromosomal abnormality or birth defects.
There are different grades of hydronephrosis 0-4.After birth depending on the severity antibiotics may be started.
Incase the grade is 4 due to obstruction surgery may also be needed to remove the obstruction
