Description In children, any ureter greater than 7 mm in diameter is considered a megaureter based on measurements in fetuses greater than 30 weeks gestation and children <12 years. Primary megaureter (POM) is a result of a functional or anatomical abnormality involving the uretero-vesical junction. Although the endoscopic and surgical techniques to manage POM are successful, we thought that early intervention may cause to undesirable results.
