Abstract :

Introduction: Foetal ureter is developed by ureteric bud shows many developmental changes. Normal morphometery of the fetal ureter at all three trimesters of development was studied to get insight into the morphometery of fetal ureter. It is necessity for correlation with its development in increased gestational age and pathological changes for normal functioning of urinary system in fetal life. Methods: Measurements of the length of the ureter from pelvi–ureteric junction to vesicoureteric junction and diameter also taken at mid of ureter in three divided gestational age groups. Results: The length of the ureter from the pelvi–ureteric junction and at gestational age of all three groups at right side 2.12, 3.80 and 5.09 and diameter is 0.21,0.38 and 0.49 while length on left is 2.24,4.06 and 5.28 and the diameter is 0.27, 0.47 and 0.52. They showed a highly positive correlation with the gestational age. The length of left ureter is more than right. Conclusion: Significant positive linear relationships exist between gestational week and the morphometery, the length and the diameter of ureter was found. The present study will be helpful in understanding the architecture of Foetal ureter and add to the existing knowledge regarding its development, its relation with gestational age and pathogenesis.
