Question:in my anamaly scan dr said that my fetus right renal pelvis is enlarged in size is it a big problem?
Answer: Renal pelvis dilatation (or hydronephrosis) is a widening of the renal pelvis and is a common finding on ultrasound scans performed during pregnancy. Often it is temporary and not associated with any problems in the kidney or ureter. In this situation, there is no risk for your child’s future health.
Question:In my tiffa scan doctor tolds that baby have renal pelvis dilation 5mm is it risky r not how to cure this
Dilation of kidney or renal pelvis is pretty common finding in anomaly scans, generally its temporary and becomes normal hence its subjects to be monitored till full term, the reason can be below;
Reflux-Where the urine goes back to kidney instead of coming to bladder
Obstruction or blockage in urinary tract
Extra ureter etc.
Please dont worry much do as the Doctor say its a common issue in unborn.babies and if persists still bith , there are urological treatment to cure it.
Hope this helps!
