Does anyone have a baby with a duplex kidney?

I just got the results from my 28 week scan and was told that our baby girl has a duplex kidney. They said they will follow up with another U/S and other tests to see if there are any other defects. They told me not to worry for now, as it seems the kidney has no blockage even though it is enlarged. I can't find much info on this condition...any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

It means that a part of her kidney is duplicated. Her kidney has two evacuation tubes instead of one. It can be very problematic if there there is reflux. She may need surgery and/or antibiotics after birth depending on what they find at the next ultrasound.

I suppose just as long as the baby is ok, then it doesn't really matter? We can live with one kidney at least.
