Antireflux surgery (ARS) was performed on 45 renal units during 1991-96. Pre-operative renal length meas­urements were available in 20 renal units and 23 renal units were evaluated for renal length postoperatively. Pre­and post-ARS renal length measurements were available in 15 renal units. Renal length measurements were made by real time B mode ultrasonography. The post-ARS renal growth was accelerated in 69.5% units, normal in 13% units and impaired in 17.3% units. Accelerated renal growth occurred mainly in the first year after ARS but continued up to 2 years. Pre-existing renal scars, hyper­tension, poor renal function and post-operative urinary tract infection did not affect post-ARS renal growth. Fail­ure of ARS resulted in renal growth retardation.
