The male: female ratio was 1.8:1. 5(1.34%) fetuses with antenatal hydronephrosis were diagnosed with Down Syndrome. 299 (91.7%) fetuses with an RPD of 4 - 7 mm had resolved by 34 weeks gestation with 10 (3.1%) having moderate to severe hydronephrosis. The resolution rate for RPD > 7 mm was 60.7%(17) with 11 fetuses (39.3%) requiring long term follow up.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Irish Medical Organisation||Journal:||Irish Medical Journal||Volume:||105||Issue:||6||Start page:||180||End page:||182||Copyright (published version):||2012 Irish Medical Journal||Keywords:||Hydronephrosis; Fetal diseases; Down Syndrome; Antenatal ultrasound; False positives||Other versions:||http://archive.imj.ie//IMJPage_0_1.aspx?issueid=443||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
