Hello doctor,

This query is about my 19 weeks pregnant sister-in-law. She had a USG today and found bilateral moderate fetal hydronephrosis. Her gynecologist told her that the kid will require surgery after delivery. Can you please check the report and explain the situation? Is surgery required? If so, what is the outlook of surgery? Can this be life threatening for the kid after birth?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

No, it is not life threatning. It has to be serially monitored every 15 days. Any intervention is usually successful after birth only and exact nature of urine obstruction also becomes clear after birth only.

Thank you doctor,

Does it have to be serially monitored prenatally or after birth? Is there a chance of it getting corrected on its own?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

No, it does not get corrected on its own. This needs urologic intervention monitor serially prenatally.
