Abstract

Ten fetuses with hydronephrosis underwent one to seven urine samplingprocedures at 23 to 36 weeks' gestation to evaluate renal function. Postnatally, the infants' renal function was assessed by a combination of serum creatinine measurement, ultrasonography, and renal scintigraphy. Six infants had pyelo-ureteric junction obstruction, two had megabladder with megaureter, and two had vesico-ureteric reflux. All infants had normal serum creatinine levels at the time of postnatal follow-up, but five of the seven with unilateral involvement had moderate or severe renal damage. Abnormal urinary electrolyte concentrations were found antenatally in only two of them. For the three infants with bilateral hydronephrosis, postnatal evaluation showed moderately or severely damaged kidneys despite prenatal evidence of normal biochemical indexes. Fetal urine electrolyte measurement may be accurate in the diagnosis of renal dysplasia, but its sensitivity is poor in predicting moderate renal dysfunction. Copyright (C) 1996 by W.B.
