Prognostic value of serum creatinine levels in children with posterior urethral valves treated by primary valve ablation.

Abstract

PURPOSE We evaluated the prognostic value of serum creatinine level at presentation and nadir creatinine during follow up for future renal function (RF) in children with posterior urethral valves (PUV).
