  • Since it is not a disease per se, the extent of postnatal workup and intervention is largely based on the philosophy of the service treating the patient and expert opinions.[clinicaladvisor.com]
  • However, in the remaining 35% of cases of prenatal hydronephrosis, a pathological condition can be identified postnatally. [8] Diagnostic workup depends on the age of the patient, as well as whether the hydronephrosis was detected incidentally or prenatally[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Acute upper tract obstruction [ 6 ] See also separate Urinary Tract Stones (Nephrolithiasis) article. Advise patients that most stones 10 mm in diameter will require intervention: Acute symptoms rarely last for more than 72 hours.[patient.info]
Abnormal Renal Function
  • These infants were divided into two groups on the basis of renal status: (1) abnormal renal function and/or surgery required (n 31) and (2) normal renal function with no surgery required (n 14).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Creatinine Increased
  • Urinary (u) concentrations of MCP-1, OPN, and RANTES were measured using immunoenzymatic enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) commercial kits and were expressed in nanograms per milligram creatinine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • In three children the treatment was converted from conservative to surgical. Nonobstructive, congenital hydronephrosis is a benign condition not requiring any medical treatment, but aggressive observation is indicated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
