Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Renal and urinary tract malformations in newborns are mostly congenital anomalies with genetic bases. The routine of antenatal ultrasound (US) scans has resulted in the early detection of these conditions and in selected cases has leaded to the development of prenatal management strategies including fetal intervention and/or the organization of the diagnostic procedures, postnatal surgical intervention and/or clinical follow-up. In minor cases, where diagnosis is not allowed during prenatal life, it may be obtained after a postnatal routine follow-up or subsequently a clinical complication, generally urinary tract infection (UTI).
