Agenesis of a ureteral orifice may accompany renal agenesis on the same side. More often, however, when there is congenital absence of a kidney the upper end of the ureter is a blind pouch. When there is absence of a ureteral orifice in the bladder, the normal markings of the trigone on that side are usually absent as well: there is no ureteral ridge, and half or more of the interureteric ridge is absent.
