Urologic abnormalities are commonly detected on routine obstetric sonographic examinations. The progressive nature and potential reversibility of obstructive urologic anomalies have led to interest in in utero treatment of these lesions. Over 90% of obstructive urologic lesions do not need treatment until after birth. For a select group of patients, antenatal treatment may improve postnatal renal and pulmonary function. When indicated, minimally invasive nephroamniotic or vesicoamniotic stenting is the preferred method of treatment.
