|Abstract:||The incidence of structural renal tract abnormalities in 109 children with documented congenital heart disease (CHD) was studied using real-time sonography. In these children, 11.9% had associated urologic anomalies, which included hydronephrosis, duplication, ectopia, agenesis, and dysplasia of kidneys. Children with associated extracardiac anomalies had a significantly higher indicence of renal tract anomalies (39.1%) compared to those with isolated CHD (4.7%). Therefore, sonographic screening of the renal tract should be performed routinely in patients with CHD, especially in those with multiple congenital defects.|
