Although previous studies have recommended performing VCUG along with Ultrasound in the postnatal period in all patients with antenatally diagnosed HN, this recommendation has not been put into widespread clinical practice.22 At this time, we cannot recommend the routine use of VCUG, as 4.8-11.3% of the patients reported in this series experienced mild VUR that healed spontaneously.
