There are many cause out there to help .  None is more important than the other, but here is some information about Prune Belly Syndrome

Prune Belly syndrome, also known as Eagle-Barrett or triad syndrome, is a distinctive set of physical problems that a child is born with.

What causes it?

The cause of the syndrome is unknown, but researchers believe that disruption of the growth of the fetus causes the problems to develop. It is thought that something blocks a part of the fetus' urinary tract, and this causes other parts of the tract to develop abnormally. Prune Belly syndrome occurs in 1 in 40,000 live births in the U.S.

How is it diagnosed?

Ultrasound during pregnancy can sometimes see the abnormal development of the bladder and urinary tract. While the fetus grows, fluid develops in its abdomen, which stretches larger and larger. The fluid is reabsorbed before birth, so when born the infant has a sagging or wrinkled abdomen (thus the "prune belly" name).

After birth, ultrasound and x-rays can determine what type of urinary tract abnormalities are present.
