Trapped urine.: Severe fetal hydronephrosis is diagnosed when urine is trapped inside the renal collecting system of a fetus with resultant destruction of kidney tissue. It can be due to stenosis or obstruction at various points in the urinary tract and merits postnatal antibiotic uroprophylaxis and imaging. Bilateral severe cases may cause oligohydramnios and fetal lung hypoplasia or demise. Seek mfm care asap! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No big deal.: Detecting renal problems by fetal ultrasound is very accurate and efficient because it can prevent serious complications postnatally. Fetal renal pyelectasis or even hydronephrosis is nothing to worry about, provided the amniotic fluid is monitored and remains normal. The neonatology team should be notified at birth to institute appropriate follow-up for the newborn; monthly ultrasounds are needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No.: Fetal pyelectasis refers to borderline prominence of the renal collecting system and is defined as >4 mm by 20 weeks; >7 mm between 20-30 weeks and >8 mm after 30 weeks. It is seen in 3% of all pregnancies associated with polyhydramnios and diabetes mellitus. It is a very weak marker of increased risk for fetal down syndrome but never causes mortal risk. Neonatal follow-up is required! ...Read more
Male fetus ultrasound (35w 4d) which showed an enlarged fetal bladder. Normal amniotic fluid and kidneys. Is this typical in third trimester?
Specific case: This is a very specific case that requires a doctor to evaluate the exact findings of the sonogram to determine if it is normal or not. You will need to seek clarification from your doctor regarding the term “enlarged bladder” to determine if further testing, follow up sonograms or a referral to a perinatologist is indicated. ...Read more
Ultrasound showed a gestational sac of 9 wks. Fetal pole not clearly visualized corresponding to 8wks 3 days, unable to detect fetal heart motion. ?
Very different: Anencephaly is the abscence of a closed cranial cavity (head) and implies incomplete brain development/function. Essentially, anencephaly is being born without functioning brain. Spinal bifida is an incomplete closure of the neural tube. There is no implication of brain development or brain function. While there may be paralysis in spina bifida, the brain can function normally in many cases. ...Read more
15mm Gestational sac identified
2wks later 17mm gestational sac with CRL 3.8mm with no cardiac activity.
Is miscarriage imminent?
Maybe: The fact that the embryo has essentially stopped growing and there is no cardiac activity suggests a failed pregnancy. Sometimes Mother Nature does not eject the failed embryo, but it remains in a degenerated state called a "missed abortion". Your MD will be able to make that determination with further testing and take the necessary action. ...Read more

18 week fetal US indicated enlarged bladder. Kidneys measured normal. Amniotic fluid normal. Any advice?
Full bladder US?: If the ultrasound was done with a full bladder as is usually done, then the pregnancy will distort and displace the bladder at 18 weeks, so it is difficult to say that the "bladder was enlarged". Since the amniotic fluid content is OK. as well as the fetus then "no worries" at this juncture. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Pregnancy 15 week, ultrasound report.,.. Turner syndrome with cystic hygroma and hydrops fetalis....., your advise required?
Your decision: in the end. These findings in the first trimester usually carry a poor outlook for survival of the baby but there have been many reports of resolution of both cystic hygroma and hydrops as pregnancy progresses. Turner syndrome will always be there. I cannot decide for you but suggest you consider re-evaluating by ultrasound in 3-4 weeks should you decide to continue the pregnancy, you will then know more about the prognosis for the baby and any associated problems such as congenital heart defect etc. see:http://www.turnersyndrome.org/#!child/c4ff ...Read more
At 20 week ultrasound, the baby's kidney showed renal pelvis dilation with calyceal dilation at 6 mm for both kidneys. There was no blockage in ureter. Opinions?
No question here: If you are asking "is there blockage in the ureter?" then the answer is possibly. Significant dilation in early gestation increases this risk. It is important to know that dilation (hydronephrosis) can occur without obstruction as well. If the amniotic fluid is low, see a pediatric urologist for prenatal consultation, particularly if you are having a boy (risk of urethral obstruction is high). ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Both foetal kidneys show mild dilation of pelvis measuring 4-5 mm showed up in 26 week fetus ultrasound
Should i be worried?
Fetal Kidneys: Would not be worried with mild dilation of fetal kidneys. This is not an uncommon findings, and usually is not significant. However, your doctor may repeat the ultrasound just to be sure. As long as your growth is fine and amniotic fluid is normal, it's not likely anything to be worried about. ...Read more
Unremarkable scan.: This is typical verbage for an unremarkable prenatal ultrasound. That means that the examination did not identify major fetal anomalies such as gastroschisis, omphalocele, anencephaly, spina bifida, diaphragmatic hernia, major heart/kidney/lung/skeletal defects. Congratulations - however keep in mind that even in experienced centers the detection rate of anomalies may not surpass 60-80%. ...Read more
