Hydronephrosis

  1. I am a student of practical nursing graduating in June and I have a question re: Hydronephrosis in the newborn. If a child is born with bilat dilation of the kidneys and then by the second year has only minimal dilation of the kidneys what would the appropriate nursing interventions be and what would the parents need to be taught to watch for, could this condition return and is this child now prone to kidney problems? I have spent a good deal of time researching it but am having difficulty finding info on hydronephrosis in pediatric patients any information, links ect would be very helpfull! Thanks!
