The aim of the study is to evaluate the prenatal differentiation diagnostic program for identification of urinary tract abnormalities to find ultrasonographic signs of fetal vesicoureteral reflux. «Prenatal ultrasound cystometry with natural filling» - was used for dynamic control of fetal urinary tract in cases (72 investigations, 54 fetuses) when the distention of upper urinary tract was noted in 19-40 weeks of gestation. The simultaneous measurement of the renal pelvis and the bladder during the micturition cycling detected the urodynamic variant of upper urinary tract obstruction. The presence of uni- or bilateral renal pelvic (and ureter) distention, the variation of pelvic size (ureter) during micturition cycling simultaneously with variations of bladder size are highly predictive of fetal vesicoureteral reflux.
