Many urological conditions can be picked up early on maternal ultrasound scans. 1 in 600 fetal ultrasound scan picks up uropathy (an abnormality). Commonly a majority of these conditions are managed conservatively and do not require an operation. However the follw up of these fetuses and babies both before and after birth is important.
I currently conduct prenatal counselling alongwith my fetal medicine consultant in my NHS base (Evelina Children’s Hospital). I have an experience in this subspeciality as a consultant paediatric urologist for the past 7 years. My experience as a paediatric urology consultant gives me the added advantage to counsel prenatally and follow up these babaies after birth and keep a close watch for their urological condition as well as operate on them when it is deemed necessary.
I have full support and facility of good paediatric radiologists for the tests required for these babies like kidney ultrasound and isotope imaging to evaluate the function in these kidneys.
