BACKGROUND Long term follow-up of a prenatally diagnosed hydronephrosis usually extends no longer than the first two years from diagnosis. During this period spontaneous reduction occurs in most of the dilatations, not sustained by obstruction or reflux. Late recurrence of hydronephrosis is considered to be unusual. The aim of the present work has been to verify the risk of recurrent hydronephrosis long time after reduction and to identify factors associated to recurrence. MATERIALS AND… CONTINUE READING
