Congenital urinary tract obstruction

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Congenital urinary tract obstruction is a heterogenous condition with a varying natural history. Accurate diagnosis within the late-first and second trimesters allows for counselling of the parents and planning of multi-disciplinary care for the pregnancy and newborn. Antenatal investigations to predict postnatal renal function are of varying accuracy. However, some factors have been shown to be predictive of poor outcome in terms of renal function at birth and infancy. There is the possibility of in-utero intervention in these fetuses.
