None: It means dilation of renal pelvis, a common urological finding on male babies by ultrasound, most resolve without bad effects, sometimes it can suggest things but not cancer some downs syndrome kids have this too, it could be from stones but u/s will show this, most not. Won't affect life unless you smoke than your a at risk for all kinds of cancers like anyone

Upper quadrant pain. Spleen borderline size 12.1cm, mild bilateral pelviectasis of kidneys. Minimal R-side hydronephrosis. Peripelvic cyst. Normal?

Upper quadrant pain. Spleen borderline size 12.1cm, mild bilateral pelviectasis of kidneys. Minimal R-side hydronephrosis. Peripelvic cyst. Normal?

Probably: Pelviectasis is a general term used to describe dilation of the renal pelvis, or collecting system of the kidney and, generally, is clinically insignificant. Hydronephrosis also refers to dilation of the renal pelvis, But has the added connotation that the pathology was caused by an obstructive process, such as a kidney stone or in your case the peripelvic cyst of Rt kidney. Unremarkable finding.

What do you suggest if my child has had an ultrasound and the report said that they found pelviectasis?

What do you suggest if my child has had an ultrasound and the report said that they found pelviectasis?

It means: There is dilatation of the renal pelvis and collecting system. This part of the kidney collects the urine and empties into the ureter. Dilatation could mean that there is an obstruction of the outflow, or it may be a sign of vesicoureteral reflux. Speak with your doctor about what it means in your child's case.

My daughter has had an ultrasound and the report said that they found pelviectasis. What can be done?

Pelviectasis -: Pelviectasis is mild dilatation of the area where the ureter meets the kidney. It can be associated with an obstructed uropathy. Pelviectasis found in children under 1 yr of age (usually during UTI work-up), has a significant rate of spontaneous resolution - which means nothing will need to be done - just monitor. If there is an obstructed uropathy then urologic surgery may be needed.

My ultrasound shows my son has an enlarged kidney known as fetal pelviectasis. Is this lethal?

My ultrasound shows my son has an enlarged kidney known as fetal pelviectasis. Is this lethal?

Doubt it: The advances in fetal monitoring have given rise to new issues that were never evident before. One is the relatively common finding of dilated renal pelvi which will often go away within a few weeks of birth when the system matures more. Persistence or actual enlargement of kidneys over time can mean a blockage in the system. This will be evident on other studies and an US obtained after birth.

What does it mean to have a mild personality disorder?

What does it mean to have a mild personality disorder?

Not sure.: Everyone has a personality or traits that characterize their behavior. When the personality or traits becomes so "unusual" as to cause enduring and significant personal or social distress it crosses the line between being "normal" and being a disorder. I suppose mild means you are approaching that border.

Bravo Ph Test: Read this: http://www. Gastro-associates. Com/servicesbrprocedures/bravophtesting. Aspx. You may have gerd or reflux disease, and this can lead to knfallation in the distal esophagus.
