Hello and hope you are doing well.

Double collecting systems of the kidneys can be incidental findings. They can be complete or incomplete. When complete, the upper pelvis and its ureter usually drain the upper third  of the kidney,
while the lower one drains the lower two-thirds of the kidney.  The upper pole ureter is prone to obstruction at the vesicoureteric junction, and may be associated with an ectopic ureterocele.  The lower pole ureter is prone to vesicoureteric reflux caused by positioning of the ureteric orifice.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
