OBJECTIVE To measure the renal resistive index (RI, an estimate of renal vascular resistance, used to assess upper tract obstructive uropathy) from the last trimester of pregnancy to the sixth month of life in a large series of healthy subjects, and thus to identify normal values that can be used routinely. During the first semester of life significant haemodynamic changes during the physiological development of the kidney cause considerable variability in RI, which is thus considered less… CONTINUE READING
