Doctor : Hydronephrosis is when a kidney becomes distended or swollen with urine due to a blocked or narrowed ureter.
Doctor : Vesicoureteral Reflux -- This is the abnormal backflow of urine from the bladder into the ureter and up to the kidney. This may be caused by an abnormality in how the ureter connects with the bladder or problems caused by nerve problems or dysfunctional voiding.
