  • Prenatal therapy for obstructive uropathy WORLD JOURNAL OF SURGERY Tsao, K. J., Albanese, C. T. 2003; 27 (1): 62-67


    The increasing use of routine prenatal imaging and diagnosis has provided a better understanding of the natural history of obstructive uropathy. Fortunately, most disorders portend little clinical significance prenatally, although a select subset can incur irreversible renal injury and pulmonary hypoplasia depending on the onset, duration, severity, and level of obstruction. In these cases, timely antenatal evaluation and prenatal intervention can provide an optimal postnatal outcome. The natural history, evaluation, and management of fetal obstructive uropathies are discussed.
