Thanks for your query,
No, in mild pelviectasia usually the outcome is good there occurs no problem. It is a relatively common condition.Fetal renal pelvis dilatation needs close follow-up during both ante-natal and postnatal periods. Treatment is required only when kidney function is impaired or the kidney becomes greatly enlarged.
Best of luck and take care..
Hope it helps you
