Abstract

The first publication concerning ultrasonic antenatal diagnosis of obstructive uropathies was by Garrett in 1975 [9]. Since then, advances in ultrasound have greatly increased the potential for the antenatal diagnosis of these malformations. Many important studies have contributed to the rapid expansion in the obstetric use of ultrasound in this field [10, 14, 15]. Apart from abnormalities in renal development — type I polycystic disease (Potter’s classification), multicystic kidney, etc. — which produce irreversible states, the recognition in utero of obstructive uropathies at a stage where they are totally asymptomatic allows effective treatment to be carried out before the appearance of more serious lesions.
