Perinatal nephropathies. (1/384)

The purpose of this paper is to review the development of the mammalian kidney and to assess the influence that various perinatal manipulations may have on the developmental process either morphologically or functionally. Immature kidneys in general have less functional capacity than adult kidneys and a low rate of glomerular filtration, perhaps related to renal blood flow, which appears to limit the disposition of a fluid or solute load. Tubular reabsorption is also limited leading to the urinary loss of glucose, amino acids, bicarbonate and phosphate. Although the relatively low function of the immature kidney is a normal part of development, its capacity to respond under conditions of stress may be less adequate than in adults. An additional concern is that a variety of perinatal manipulations, such as the incidental or accidental ingestion of a chemical, may lead to varying degrees of altered morphogenesis or functional development of the kidney. Chemical induced renal anomalies may be of several types, but in typical teratology experiments hydronephrosis may be the most frequent observation. The functional consequences of these renal malformations may be lethal or inconsequential or while an animal may be able to survive and develop normally in the presence of a renal malformation, it is possible that a stressful situation would unmask a functional malformation which could compromise survival. Thus, some renal abnormalities may be subtle enough to go unnoticed without experimental tests. Without such tests it is impossible to evaluate the effect of functional alterations on successful adaptation.  (+info)

Obstructive uropathy and hydronephrosis in male KK-Ay mice: a report of cases. (2/384)

Uropathy associated with hydronephrosis was observed frequently in our male KK-Ay mouse colony during a long-term study of diabetes. The lesion occurred in 24 of the 31 KK-Ay male mice and accounted for the greatest number of spontaneous deaths among them. It was observed after 4 months of age and involved about hard plugs of altered seminal material resembling the seminal vesicle secretion. The plugs became impacted in the urethral bulb and the bladder. The penile anatomy, with its flexure, pressure on the urethra from the bulbocavernosus muscle, and the characteristic ability of the seminal fluid to easily coagulate to form the vaginal plug may have contributed to the lesion. Correlation between development of the uropathy and diabetes has not been established.  (+info)

Utility of ultrasound of the upper urinary tract in elderly men with indicators of obstructive symptoms or abnormal flow: how often can silent hydronephrosis be detected in general practice? (3/384)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: While the prevalence of hydronephrosis is very low in obduction studies, a prevalence of 3-13% is reported for patients with an obstruction who are listed for prostatectomy. In order to evaluate the usefulness of transabdominal ultrasound in primary care, we determined the occurrence of hydronephrosis in males with symptoms of urinary obstruction in a general practice setting. METHOD: A micturition questionnaire (a modified Boyarsky) was sent to all men of 55 years or more who were registered in 10 general practices in Maastricht, and was followed by an examination at their general practice. Men with obstructive symptoms and/or with a free-flow abnormality were examined in the hospital with transabdominal ultrasound in order to detect dilatation of the upper urinary tract. This ultrasound was repeated approximately 15 months later. RESULTS: At the first measurement, none of the examined men (n = 178) had hydronephrosis, and this was still the case for 94 men 15 months later. CONCLUSION: Renal ultrasound is not necessary in general practice for men with uncomplicated obstructive complaints.  (+info)

Systemic multifocal fibrosclerosis. (4/384)

We describe a case of hydronephrosis as a result of retroperitoneal fibrosis in a patient who had previous sclerosing lobulitis of the breast. To the best of our knowledge this is the first reported association between these two conditions in the english literature. We presume these conditions are linked and unify them under the general heading of systemic multifocal fibrosclerosis.  (+info)

Resistive indices in the evaluation of infants with obstructive and nonobstructive pyelocaliectasis. (5/384)

Diagnosing obstructive uropathy by renal resistive indices calculated from duplex Doppler sonographic waveforms has been supported as well as challenged in the radiology literature relating to adults. Despite reports of normally higher resistive indices in children as compared to adults, two studies have documented high sensitivity and specificity of renal Doppler sonography in the diagnosis of obstructive uropathy in children, using the same discriminatory criterion of a resistive index of 0.7 or greater as used in adults. We evaluated 43 infants with significant or bilateral pyelocaliectasis secondary to both obstructive and unobstructive uropathy and found no significant difference in the mean resistive indices or the mean difference in resistive indices of two kidneys in one patient. We conclude that Doppler sonography in infants has no value in differentiating obstructive from nonobstructive pyelocaliectasis.  (+info)

Gastroschisis associated with bladder evisceration complicated by hydronephrosis presenting antenatally. (6/384)

We report here a case of gastroschisis associated with bladder evisceration and complicated by rapidly developing hydronephrosis diagnosed antenatally. The timing of delivery was determined by the hydronephrosis, associated bowel dilatation and polyhydramnios. The case highlights the need for continuing ultrasonographic surveillance of fetuses with gastroschisis to identify further associated complications which were hitherto absent but whose presence may influence the timing of delivery and neonatal care.  (+info)

Two cases of metastatic bladder cancers showing diffuse thickening of the bladder wall. (7/384)

Metastatic bladder cancer showing diffuse thickening of the bladder wall is very rare. We report two cases of metastatic bladder cancer arising from a stomach cancer and acute lymphocytic leukemia. Hydronephrosis and diffuse thickening of the bladder wall were revealed by ultrasonography and computed tomography. Transurethral biopsy and percutaneous whole wall needle biopsy of the bladder were useful for diagnosis. The possibility of metastasis or recurrence of prior and other malignancies should therefore be considered when the clinical features described here are encountered.  (+info)

Sonographic diagnosis of ureteral tumors. (8/384)

We present our experience with transabdominal ultrasonographic diagnosis of ureteral tumors. During the years 1989 to 1998, 16 patients were diagnosed as having ureteral tumors. These patients were referred for sonographic examination for evaluation of hematuria (seven patients) or flank pain (four patients) or for follow-up screening in patients who were asymptomatic but at high risk for transitional cell carcinoma because of known past bladder tumor (five patients). Ten of these patients underwent intravenous urography examination, three patients had retrograde pyelography, and 11 patients underwent CT scanning. Ultrasonography revealed the ureteral tumors in all 16 patients, which appeared as hypoechoic intraluminal soft tissue. Three tumors were localized in the upper ureter, four in the middle ureter, and nine in the distal ureter. The degree of ureterohydronephrosis was minimal (two cases), mild (five cases), moderate (eight cases), or severe (one case). Eleven tumors caused local widening of the ureteral diameter. On intravenous urography, four patients had a nonfunctioning kidney, three patients had unexplained ureterohydronephrosis, and three patients showed ureteral filling defects, of which only two had irregular contours. On retrograde pyelography, two patients had filling defects (one of which with smooth margins), and one had a truncated ureter. On CT the tumor was clearly demonstrated in only seven patients. We found that ultrasonography can be a useful diagnostic tool in the workup of ureteral tumors.  (+info)

Description of disease Unilateral hydronephrosis. Treatment Unilateral hydronephrosis. Symptoms and causes Unilateral hydronephrosis Prophylaxis Unilateral hydronephrosis
Treatment of Hydronephrosis occurs when urine builds up in the kidneys and cannot drain out to the bladder. The kidneys swell from the excess urine. The condition may affect one kidney or both. Hydronephrosis is not a disease itself, but rather a sign of another disease or condition affecting the kidneys. Swelling of the kidneys can lead to kidney damage, This is a serious condition that requires care from your doctor. Most patients who have hydronephrosis will not know it until it has already damaged the kidney. Therefore, if you are at risk for this condition, it is important to be under the care of a physician, Hydronephrosis, Urinary Tract, Kidney Stones, Hydronephrosis Definition, Hydronephrosis Treatment, Cause Of Hydronephrosis, Hydronephrosis Diagnosis, Hydronephrosis Symptoms, Effects Of Hydronephrosis, Emedicine Hydronephrosis, Hydronephrosis Down Syndrome, Hydronephrosis In Utero, Hydronephrosis Pain, Surgery For Hydronephrosis, Syndrome Hydronephrosis, Types Of Hydronephrosis
Patients with congenital hydronephrosis will be identified by inpatient consultations performed by Dr. Assadi for congenital hydronephrosis and by outpatient problem lists with congenital hydronephrosis of Dr. Assadis existing patients. Once identified, the patients grade of hydronephrosis will be recorded from initial ultrasound based on Society of Fetal Urology (SFU) classification. If no initial SFU classification was assigned to the hydronephrosis a pediatric radiologist will review the initial ultrasound images and classify the grade of hydronephrosis based upon SFU criteria. The patients ensuing evaluation of their hydronephrosis that took place will then be recorded and de-identified. Data to be collected will include: Ultrasound evaluations of the abdomen, retroperitoneum, or renal system, Voiding Cysto-Urethrogram (VCUGs), nuclear studies: diuretic enhanced technetium-99m dietylene triamine penta-acetic acid renogram (DTPA) or technetium-99m Mercapto-acetyl-triglycine renogram (MAG3), ...
Gross hematuria is uncommon, and rarely associated with hydronephrosis in healthy children. We describe a 3-year-old boy who complained of gross hematuria and dysuria. He was diagnosed as cystitis with bilateral hydronephrosis, and treated with antibiotics and conservative therapy. Our experience suggests that cystitis with hydronephrosis can occur in healthy children presenting with gross hematuria. ...
Giant hydronephrosis is defined as the presence of over 1000 mL of liquid within the urinary collector system. It is usually secondary to ureteropelvic junction obstruction, lithiasis or congenital abnormality. As clinical presentation is unpredictable and usually initially asymptomatic, diagnosis may be postponed thus leading to a kidney mass which could appear with clinical features of abdominal organs compression (bowel or urinary obstruction) or simulate abdominal tumors, massive ascites, or cystic retroperitoneal lesions. Someti-mes, arterial hypertension, dyspepsia and signs of venous compression are also presented. Nephrectomy is the gold standard for the treatment of giant hydronephrosis and it must be considered if a permanent and severe lost of renal function is present ...
Results. Hydronephrosis was on the right side in 98 cases (36%), and on the left side in the other 174 (64%). There were 129 grade I hydronephrosis (47%), 46 grade II (17%), 57 grade III (21%), 40 grade IV (15%). Fifty-seven (21%) cases of hydronephrosis underwent surgery: 49 (86%) showing obstructive pattern at functional tests, 40 (70%) presenting a differential renal function less than 40%, 5 (8%) because recurrent urinary tract infections, 40 (70%) affected by grade IV hydronephrosis. No children received nephrectomy. Average postoperative follow-up was 2.8 years: pelvic dilatation improved or remained unchanged but the obstructive pattern at functional tests always disappeared after surgery. The average follow up in the observational group of 163 patients (60%) was 4.1 years. In 149 (91%) pelvic dilatation improved, but in 14 (9%) it remained unchanged ...
Question - Bilateral dilated ureters and bilateral hydronephrosis, has stunts for blockage. Is it totally curable? . Ask a Doctor about when and why Ultra sound is advised, Ask a Nephrologist
Antenatal hydronephrosis and vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) are common renal tract birth defects. We recently showed that disruption of the Robo2 gene is associated with VUR in humans and antenatal hydronephrosis in knockout mice. However, the natural history, causal relationship and developmental origins of these clinical conditions remain largely unclear. Although the hydronephrosis phenotype in Robo2 knockout mice has been attributed to the coexistence of ureteral reflux and obstruction in the same mice, this hypothesis has not been tested experimentally. Here we used noninvasive high- resolution micro-ultrasonography and pathological analysis to follow the progression of antenatal hydronephrosis in individual Robo2-deficient mice from embryo to adulthood. We found that hydronephrosis progressed continuously after birth with no spontaneous resolution. With the use of a microbubble ultrasound contrast agent and ultrasound-guided percutaneous aspiration, we demonstrated that antenatal ...
Hydronephrosis, due to ureteropelvic junction obstruction, is a common condition in infants with an incidence of approximately 0.5-1%. During the last decade, the surgical management of non-symptomatic hydronephrosis has become more conservative, and the long-term physiological consequences of this new policy are unclear. The overall aim of this thesis was to determine whether there is a link between hydronephrosis and the development of hypertension. Hydronephrosis was induced by partial ureteral obstruction in 3-week old rats or mice. In the adult animals, blood pressure was measured telemetrically during different sodium conditions and the renal function was evaluated. Both species developed salt-sensitive hypertension and histopathological changes (i.e. fibrosis, inflammation, glomerular and tubular changes) that correlated with the degree of hydronephrosis. An abnormal renal excretion pattern with increased diuresis and impaired urine concentrating ability was observed in hydronephrosis. ...
Figure 1 How is hydronephrosis diagnosed?. Hydronephrosis is usually diagnosed in one of two ways.. 1) A prenatal ultrasound (ultrasound during pregnancy) may reveal a fetus with dilated kidneys. This occurs in 1 per 100 pregnancies. 2) An ultrasound done as a routine evaluation for another medical problem, such as a urinary tract infection or incontinence, may also reveal hydronephrosis. Once hydronephrosis is noted, whether it is during pregnancy or later, additional tests are often required in order to find out the significance of the hydronephrosis. These tests are important because children with hydronephrosis may have an anatomic abnormality or urinary tract blockage. Early diagnosis and treatment of a potential urologic abnormality can prevent urinary tract infections and permanent kidney damage or scarring.. What, if any, other test should be done?. · VCUG (voiding cystourethrogram): This study gives us important information regarding the shape and size of the bladder, the bladder neck ...
Twenty-five years ago an association between polycythemia and renal carcinoma was suspected and reported in the literature.1 Two years ago a case was described of polycythemia associated with unilateral hydronephrosis where the polycythemia was corrected following removal of the diseased kidney.2 Subsequently, four additional cases have been reported concerning the association of hydronephrosis with polycythemia.3-5 It has been theorized that an erythropoietic stimulus arises from the diseased kidney, inasmuch as the polycythemia is corrected upon its removal.6. The following case is another instance of the association of marked polycythemia and unilateral hydronephrosis, with remission of the polycythemia following nephrectomy. Efforts ...

OBJECTIVES Hydronephrosis is commonly caused by an obstruction of the urine flow from the kidney. The condition involves a dilation and distention of the renal pelvis. Hydronephrosis may be either acute or chronic in nature. It was reported a postnatal infant had hypoplastic left heart with hydronephrosis, indicating that there may be a relationship between hydronephrosis and heart disease. However, whether hydronephrosis causes cardiac damage and affects the RAS in the heart remains unknown. Thus, we assessed BP, heart weight and the expression of components of the RAS in the heart in hydronephrotic mice treated with AT1 receptor blockade and ACE ...
This study focuses on the relationship between prophylaxis antibiotics and frequency of urinary tract infection in children diagnosed with antenatal hydronephrosis. Hydronephrosis is the most common fetal abnormality occurring in 1-5% of all pregnancies. Currently, with the widespread accessibility of antenatal ultrasound across cities in Ontario, the detection of hydronephrosis has become even more common. As a result, thousands of infants with hydronephrosis have been seen and managed by pediatricians, pediatric nephrologists, pediatric urologists, and family physicians. The investigators need to determine if antibiotic prophylaxis is effective in reducing the number of urinary tract infections in this population ...
Attacks are often accompanied by high blood pressure, abdominal distension, nausea and vomiting.As before the attacks, and during them, patients often marked decrease in the amount of urine and increase its opposite number after the attack.. in hypochondria clearly palpable tumor formation.. signs of renal failure occur for the most part only in bilateral hydronephrosis Treatment The first treatment of this disease is aimed at eliminating the causes that caused the development of hydronephrosis, as well as the need to reduce the size of the pelvis.. Conservative treatment is used to reduce pain, lower blood pressure, relieve symptoms of renal failure, inflammatory processes and is used as a preparation for surgery.. methods of surgical treatment are quite a few, but the most common is the reconstruction of the renal - pelvis system.The amount and type of surgery depends on the disease, which is caused hydronephrosis.In recent years, quite a widely used laparoscopic treatment methods by which ...

The most common cause of fetal hydronephrosis is ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction. This finding is characterized by varying degrees of renal pelvic dilation. The most common cause of UPJ obstruction is an intrinsic narrowing of the proximal ureter. This narrowing can be likened to a scar or stricture in the ureter as it leaves the kidney. Sometimes, the ureter can be obstructed behind a band of tissue or a blood vessel supplying the lower segment of the kidney. This entity is known as a crossing vessel.When a dilated ureter is detected along with the renal pelvis, the working diagnosis is vesicoureteral reflux or uretero-vesical junction obstruction. Males with significant hydroureteronephrosis occurring simultaneously with a large thin walled bladder and normal renal parenchyma will often have a condition of massive reflux known as megacystis-megaureter.Prenatal findings of hydroureteronephrosis can be associated with other diagnoses such as posterior urethral valves, prune-belly syndrome, or
This case illustrates an iatrogenic right hydronephrosis classified as severe due the gross dilatation of the renal pelvis and calyces, which appear ballooned, ​and significant cortical thinning.
Im 28 weeks preg now, but at my 20 week u/s the baby had too much fluid in both kidneys. 2 weeks later i had another scan to re-check and the fluid had increased. By 24 weeks another scan showed the right kidney measuring 17mm and the left 16mm (the normal cut off is 10mm). After nearly 2 weeks of worry the consultant came back to me and said they will re-scan at 32 weeks. The bladder appears to be functioning normally and there was normal amniotic fluid, so the consultant said he will re-scan. Im beside myself with worry. They think the baby has pelvic ureter junction obstruction. An obstruction to the flow of urine at the ureters. Ive got 4 more weeks to wait for this scan and its killing me ...
1. In order to clarify further the phenomenon of post-obstructive diuresis, clearance and micro-puncture experiments were done before and after relief of partial ureteral obstruction in rats with a solitary hydronephrotic kidney.. 2. Glomerular filtration rate, urine flow and sodium excretion increased markedly, whereas surface nephron glomerular filtration rate increased only slightly and intratubular pressure, proximal and distal tubular water reabsorption did not change significantly. Decreased tubular reabsorption in deeper nephrons and collecting ducts appeared to be of major importance in the post-obstructive diuresis after relief of chronic obstruction.. 3. In order to examine further the distinctive functional characteristics of the chronically hydronephrotic kidney, the results were compared with control rats having a solitary normal kidney or a solitary remnant kidney with an intact renal medulla. Urine flow rate and sodium excretion were higher and urine osmolality was lower (P , ...
Hydronephrosis:. If postnatal US demonstrates bilateral hydronephrosis, severity of hydronephrosis should be assessed, a VCUG should be performed to evaluate bladder anatomy and exclude VUR or PUV in boys. In the absence of VUR or PUV, a dynamic renal scan should be performed to exclude urinary tract obstruction [e.g., uretero-pelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction] and evaluate differential renal function.. Antibiotic prophylaxis with amoxicillin (20 mg/kg PO once a day) should be initiated to decrease the risk of urinary tract infection (UTI) and continued until the presence of VUR is excluded or in the presence of higher grades of hydronephrosis even in the absence of VUR.. Mild and moderate hydronephrosis can be assessed initially by US after the first week of life. Medical management is focused on correction of electrolyte and acid-base abnormalities, and maintenance of appropriate fluid balance.. Long-term management is tailored according to disease severity and course. Persistent moderate to ...

Imaging studies, such as an intravenous urogram (IVU), renal ultrasonography, CT, or MRI, are also important investigations in determining the presence and/ or cause of hydronephrosis. Whilst ultrasound allows for visualisation of the ureters and kidneys (and determine the presence of hydronephrosis and / or hydroureter), an IVU is useful for assessing the anatomical location of the obstruction. Antegrade or retrograde pyelography will show similar findings to an IVU but offer a therapeutic option as well. Real-time ultrasounds and Doppler ultrasound tests in association with vascular resistance testing helps determine how a given obstruction is effecting urinary functionality in hydronephrotic patients.[9] In determining the cause of hydronephrosis, the location of obstruction can be determined with a Whittaker (or pressure perfusion) test, wherein the collecting system of the kidney is accessed percutaneously, and the liquid is introduced at high pressure and constant rate of 10ml/min while ...

Hydronephrosis is a common illness in children and consists in the dilatation of the renal collector system. It may be congenital, and in this case is called fetal hydronephrosis, or it can be acquired, which is less frequent. The fetal hydronephrosis may be diagnosed during the intrauterine life through obstetric ultrasound. Mild to moderate dilatations may resolve spontaneously before or after birth. However, larger dilatations can be causes of urinary tract infection, damage to the renal parenchyma, and may require surgical treatment. The main causes of persistent fetal hydronephrosis after birth are ureteropelvic junction stenosis, vesicoureteral reflux, ureterovesical junction stenosis, ureteric duplication associated or not with ureterocele, and posterior urethra valve. In relation to the acquired hydronephrosis, the most common etiology is the angulation of the proximal ureter resulting from an anomalous polar vessel; however, it can also be due to ureterolithiasis, which is uncommon. In ...
Intrauterine device (IUD) insertion is a long-acting and one of the most effective modes of reversible contraception. Complications that most commonly arise following IUD insertion are failed insertion, pain, vasovagal reactions, infection, menstrual abnormalities, and expulsion. In this paper, we present the case of a woman who experienced hydronephrosis due to the migration of IUD into the ureter after 30 years of insertion. To the best of our knowledge, this is the third such case reported in the literature. ...
Semantic Scholar extracted view of [Simple extrarenal hydronephrosis due to stenosis of the pyeloureteral junction]. by G Ottolenghi
Hydronephrosis and VUR are well-known risk factors for UTIs in children [15-18]. In a retrospective single center study on the incidence of UTIs in infants with antenatal diagnosis of hydronephrosis, 24 (13%) in 192 patients experienced at least one episode of a UTI during the follow-up period. Among these patients with a UTI, high grade VUR was detected in 15 patients (63%) [19]. Indeed, a different study also suggested that prenatal hydronephrosis with high grade VUR may pose as a risk factor for UTIs [20].. Kidney sonography can be used to predict VUR in neonates and infants [21-24]. In a study on 735 infants diagnosed with mild hydronephrosis, 189 infants (25.7%) had VUR. This study also included patients with UTIs, and there was no statistically significant relationship between mild hydronephrosis and the presence of a UTI. However, UTI incidence was significantly higher in patients with VUR grade 3 or higher than in those with a lower grade VUR, regardless of the presence of hydronephrosis ...

While ketamine-induced urinary symptoms and pathology have sometimes been referred to as ketamine cystitis in the literature [12], the urological sequelae of ketamine abuse extend beyond the lower urinary tract. In the 59 patients with ketamine abuse reported by Chu et al. [9], 30 (51%) were found to have either unilateral or bilateral hydronephrosis in the initial assessment. Most of these patients in their case series were found to have hydronephrosis and hydroureters down to the level of the vesico-ureteric junctions on intravenous urograms, implying that upper tract involvement was likely the result of a long-term decrease in bladder compliance. In our series, genuine ureteric obstruction was found in some patients with hydronephrosis. The obstructing points varied from the vesicoureteric junction to the pelvic-ureteric junction. This suggests that when encountering patients with a history of ketamine abuse who have hydronephrosis, both a video urodynamic study of the lower urinary tract and ...
Dialysis will be of no benefit for hydronephrosis. Dialysis may temporarily decrease the serum creatinine (not to zero) but the creatinine will again rise starting immediately after the dialysis treatment is stopped and then will rise to pre-treatment levels within 24 to 48 hours after the dialysis session. Hydronephrosis should be evaluated by a urologist.
Results Hydronephrosis was identified in 15 patients with SLE complicated by cystitis and/or enteritis. All patients were treated initially with moderate to high dose corticosteroids. A follow-up imaging study showed that 11 (73.3%) of 15 patients experienced improvements in hydronephrosis, and urinary obstruction was resolved without urological intervention in the majority of these patients (8/11, 72.7%). The four patients who experienced no improvement in hydronephrosis were older than those who responded to treatment (median age (IQR); 43.0 (37.5-53.0) years vs. 28.0 (21.0-38.5) years; p=0.026). In addition, delayed treatment (≥1 month after onset of symptoms) with corticosteroids was more frequently observed in the non-responding patients than in the responding patients (p=0.011). ...

Antenatal hydronephrosis (ANH) is one of the most common anomalies identified during routine prenatal ultrasonography. Most of the time ANH is self-limiting, but it can also be an indication of underlying urologic pathology. Complications associated with ANH include increased risk of urinary tract infection and decreased renal function. Risk factors that increase the likelihood of complications include a high value for anteroposterior diameter, female gender, the lack of circumcision in males, and the presence of reflux or obstruction. The use of antibiotic prophylaxis in patients with ANH is debatable, but the presence of certain risk factors can help the pharmacist determine the appropriateness of antibiotic use in patients.

Matrix Metalloproteinase-2 (Mmp2) is a collagenase known to be important in the development of renal fibrosis. In unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO) the obstructed kidney (OK) develops fibrosis, while the contralateral (CL) does not. In this study we investigated the effect of UUO on gene expression, fibrosis and pelvic remodeling in the kidneys of Mmp2 deficient mice (Mmp2-/-), heterozygous animals (Mmp2+/-) and wild-type mice (Mmp2+/+). Sham operated animals served as controls (Cntrl). UUO was prepared under isoflurane anaesthesia, and the animals were sacrificed after one week. UUO caused hydronephrosis, dilation of renal tubules, loss of parenchymal thickness, and fibrosis. Damage was most severe in Mmp2+/+ mice, while both Mmp2-/- and Mmp2+/- groups showed considerably milder hydronephrosis, no tubular necrosis, and less tubular dilation. Picrosirius red quantification of fibrous collagen showed 1.63±0.25% positivity in OK and 0.29±0.11% in CL (p,0.05) of Mmp2+/+, Mmp2-/- OK and ...

Prenatal Manifestation (VUR), Videosequence.. Part of an ultrasound sequence during the examination of a fetus in the 33rd week of pregnancy with urological malformations in the family. Bilateral irregularly shaped and dilated cavities are visible in the retroperitoneal space at the level of the kidneys which are filled with fluid and are in correlation to the kidney. The diagnosis is bilateral hydronephrosis, the cause of which may be a bilateral obstruction of the ureteropelvic junction, juxtavesical stenosis of the ureter, obstruction of the lower urinary tract, or bilateral reflux. Dilatation of the ureters and increase in dilatation during micturation are indications of reflux. This ultrasound sequence illustrates that for the evaluation of a fetus precise knowledge of possible variations from the normal state,and of pathological findings and its variations are necessary (With permission M. Meyer-Wittkopf, UFK Tuebingen). ...
One of the most widely discussed topics in the postnatal management of ANH is the initiation of continuous antibiotic prophylaxis (CAP). One study found that infants with ANH were nearly 12 times more likely to have pyelonephritis-related hospitalizations in the first year of life.16 The risks versus benefits of long-term antibiotics may not always be clear, but there are several factors that pharmacists should consider when evaluating the need for CAP.. The necessity of CAP depends on the presentation of several risk factors. Guidelines by the American Urological Association do not recommend CAP in patients with SFU grades I and II.17 One study found that patients with SFU grade I or II had resolution rates of 96.7% and 98.6%, respectively, and only 0.7% of patients experienced febrile UTI.3 Other studies have also demonstrated a low likelihood of UTI in mild ANH even in the presence of VUR or UPJO.18,19 Another study revealed that patients with low-grade hydronephrosis receiving CAP had ...
Uterine fibroids are most commonly known for symptoms like heavy periods and pelvic pain. But these noncancerous growths can also be the cause of a kidney condition called hydronephrosis, according to a study in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.1. While most women with fibroids dont get hydronephrosis, a small percentage of women with very large fibroids develop the condition, explains Dr. Alex Shteynshlyuger, Board-Certified Urologist, Urological Surgeon, and Director of Urology at New York Urology Specialists in New York City, NY, who was not involved in the study. Hydronephrosis is caused by blockage of the ureters-or the tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder-due to pressure exerted by fibroids. When urine cant drain properly, this causes the kidneys to swell. Hydronephrosis caused by fibroids requires prompt treatment, as it can cause damage to the kidneys.. Just how common is uterine fibroid-related hydronephrosis? A team of researchers at the University of ...

The ectodermal dysplasia and cleft lip/palate (EEC) syndrome describes the association of ectrodactyly, ectodermal dysplasia and orofacial clefting. As with many autosomal dominant disorders, there is variability in expression and not all of these three core features are present in every individual with the condition. Moreover, there may be additional associated features, which are under-recognized. One of these is the presence of genitourinary anomalies, some of which cause significant morbidity. This report details a further two patients with EEC syndrome and genitourinary involvement, including flaccid megacystis with detrusor muscle failure, bilateral hydronephrosis and megaureter, requiring significant renal and urological involvement during their childhood ...

Introduction: Both, the renal pelvis and the ureter, are affected by developmental, reactive and neoplastic disorders, though rare in incidence. Aim: This series of cases were analysed to study the clinicopathological characteristics of the common and comparatively rare lesions involving the renal pelvis and pelviureteric junction. Materials and Methods: A retrospective collection of 476 nephrectomies and pelviureteric junction resections, received over a period of 13 years from 2001 to 2013 was done. The patients clinical details were obtained and the histopathological findings reviewed. The lesions were classified into non-neoplastic and neoplastic categories. Results: Primary involvement of the renal pelvis and pelviureteric junction was seen in 105 of 476 specimens. The mean age was 54.5 years with a male to female ratio of 2.2:1. The non-neoplastic lesions accounted for 76.2% of cases with a majority being pelviureteric junction obstruction due to inflammation induced fibromuscular ...
Result Of the 61 pregnancies referred antenatally, 40 case notes were retrospectively reviewed to assess postnatal outcome. 21 cases were excluded (no baby notes /deaths /born outside Wales). Benefit of antenatal surgery performed on 4 cases with pelvic aspirations and pigtail catheter insertion proved unfruitful as three resulted in single functioning kidney and one had persisting hydronephrosis. Significant discrepancy in antenatal and postnatal scan results was noted (22/40) leading to a different postnatal diagnosis. Urogenital obstruction (12/40), vesico ureteric reflux (7/40), ureterocele (5/40) and duplex kidneys (4/40) were common. Surgical interventions was performed in 21/40 cases and included puncture or excision of ureteroceles, ureteric reimplantation, heminephrectomy and treatment of obstruction. Urinary tract infections (15/40) were often recurrent despite oral prophylactic antibiotic. Overall, 13/40 cases had a single functioning kidney. High association with other congenital ...

Purpose To investigate the variability of the normal-sized fetal renal pelvis (≤5 mm) over time and to analyze repeatability of measurements. Materials and Methods 98 fetal renal pelvises and 49 fetal urinary bladders were analyzed at a gestational age of 17-20 weeks at St. Olavs Hospital, Trondheim, Norway. The anterior-posterior diameter (APD) of the fetal renal pelvis and two diameters of the fetal bladder were measured with an interval of at least 30 min. Intra- and interobserver variations and variations over time and in association with bladder size were investigated. Results The mean difference in renal pelvis size between the first and second measurements was 0.09 mm (95% CI, −0.09 to 0.26 mm). The variation over time was ≤1 mm in 85% of cases and the renal pelvis was ≤4 mm in both the first and second examinations in 92% of cases. The intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) was 0.54 (95% CI: 0.31 to 0.69). We did not observe any association between variation of bladder size and ...
New research reveals the expression of antimicrobial peptides - long associated only with infections - in children with obstructive uropathy, creating the potential for a wide range of clinical applications.. Previously only studied in the context of urinary tract and other infections, antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) - naturally occurring antibiotic molecules that our bodies may use to protect against infection - may also play a role in obstructive uropathy, according to a recent study conducted by urology and nephrology clinician-scientists at Nationwide Childrens Hospital.. Upon investigating the urine of children undergoing surgery for ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO), the team identified a significant increase in the expression of AMPs compared to age- and sex-matched healthy controls. The findings were published in the Journal of Pediatric Urology.. There was some precedent for believing AMPs may play a role in non-infectious etiologies, such as interstitial cystitis. As a result, ...
Abstract Schistosoma mansoni and S. haematobium infections were studied quantitatively in 400 consecutive autopsies in Cairo, Egypt. Pathological findings were correlated with the presence or absence of schistosome infection as well as with the intensity of infection. The intensity of S. haematobium infection was much greater in cases with obstructive uropathy (hydroureter or hydronephrosis) than in those without; however, infection intensity was similar in cases with mild or severe obstructive uropathy; i.e., the presence, but not the degree, of obstructive uropathy was related to infection intensity. The presence of focal lesions was more important in the pathogenesis of severe obstructive uropathy than was the concentration of eggs in the ureters or bladder. The most severe cases of schistosomal obstructive uropathy were usually caused by ureteral stenosis, ureteral stones or distortion of the ureteral orifices. Pyelonephritis was of similar frequency in cases with and without ...
Renal pelvis dilatation (or hydronephrosis) is a widening of the renal pelvis and is a common finding on ultrasound scans (USS) performed during pregnancy. Often it is temporary and not associated with any problems in the kidney or ureter. In this situation, there is no risk for your childs future health.. However, in a small proportion of cases, hydronephrosis can be a sign of problems involving the kidneys, ureters, bladder, or the urethra (tube through which urine leaves the bladder). The two most common conditions are Pelviureteric Junction (PUJ) Obstruction and Vesicourethral Reflex (VUR).. ...
Aim This work was performed to study the effect of obestatin on normal, diabetic, and obese male albino rats. Materials and methods A total of 60 male albino rats were divided into six groups: group 1 was the normal control group; group 2, the obestatin-treated group, was injected with 100 μg/kg of obestatin subcutaneously twice daily for 1 week; group 3 was the diabetic control group; group 4, the obestatin-treated diabetic group, was injected with obestatin as in group 2; group 5 was the obese control group; and group 6, the obestatin-treated obese group, was injected with obestatin as in group 2. At the end of the experimental period, serum samples were collected after decapitation for estimation of fasting glucose, insulin, triglyceride (TG), and total cholesterol. BMI was also measured. Results After 1 week of obestatin treatment, the obestatin-treated control group showed insignificant changes in serum fasting glucose, insulin, TG, and total cholesterol levels with the exception of BMI, ...
Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is the backward flow of urine from the bladder to the upper urinary tract. VUR affects about 1 percent of all children in the United States and is typically diagnosed after urinary tract infection with fever (UTIs) or antenatal hydronephrosis. Children with VUR may also have constipation and/or fecal soiling problems and issues with urinating

I am a 45 years old woman who underwent sonography of abdomen and pelvis. The report showed evidence of |b|mild hydronephrosis and hydrouretor due to mild uretric calculus|/b| measuring 5.1 mm in size in my left kidney. The right kidney showed evidence of a calculus measuring 4.4 mm in upper pole and 3.9 mm in lower pole. I also underwent hydrotherapy for three days as asked by the doctor but the stone has not gone down. I am taking Levoflax 750 - a tablet daily, Cystone - 2 tablets 3 times, Neeri (10 ml) 3 times, Uriliser (10 ml) 3 times, Kesal (5 ml) with a glass of water and Spamoproxivon sos. Now, I have been advised to wait for another 4-5 days and continue with the same medicine along with ample consumption of water. One day has gone and there is no pain or movement of stone downward. Please advise whether surgery is required for stones?
Pyomyositis is an acute bacterial infection of the skeletal muscles that arises from hematogenous spread and is caused predominantly by Gram-positive cocci. We report a case of iliopsoas pyomyositis in a 25-year-old Greek Caucasian woman with a history of intravenous drug use. Her condition was complicated by bilateral dilation of the ureters and renal calyces as a result of mechanical pressure from inflammation and edema of the involved muscle. The patient did not present aggravation of renal function and was treated successfully solely with intravenous antibiotics, without surgical intervention. This is the first case report describing iliopsoas pyomyositis with reversible bilateral dilation of the urinary tract that was treated successfully with intravenous antibiotics, without surgical intervention. We present the first described case of iliopsoas pyomyositis with reversible bilateral hydroureteronephrosis that was treated successfully with intravenous antibiotics, without the necessity of surgical

According to Ayurveda this disease is caused by the blockage of minute body channels called srotas. The body channels involved in this case, known as mutravaha srotas, which carry urine and are responsible for the flow of liquid into and out of the kidneys. If there are blockages in the incoming channels, the kidneys are denied fluids and shrinkage occurs.. If the outgoing channels are blocked, swelling occurs and the condition is called Hydronephrosis. In Hydronephrosis the kidney swells due to the failure of normal drainage of urine from the kidney to the bladder.. There are very effective Ayurvedic herbs, such as punanarva and gokhru that can clean these channels and reduce swelling and rejuvenate the kidneys. Ayurvedic treatment aims at strengthening the kidneys, restoring its filtration capacity and general functioning of the kidneys. Controlling blood pressure, blood sugar level, cholesterol level, body weight, smoking and alcohol consumption is important to avoid further kidney ...

Brian and I were married in 2012 and just a few short months later became pregnant with our first child. I had a pretty typical pregnancy, with the exception of finding out that our son had bi-lateral hydronephrosis (inflammation of the kidneys) about 6 months into the pregnancy. We had a few extra ultrasounds and were seen by a specialist a few time but we were told that the hydronephrosis could very well resolve on its own once he was born. Because of the hydro though, I was induced at 38 weeks and Bryson Kenneth Faus was born on March 5th, 2013 at about 9:15pm. He was perfect! However, our world was turned upside down about 12 hours later when we found out the next morning that something was wrong with his little heart. The family doctor who came to do his newborn checkup heard a heart murmur. Although murmurs are not uncommon in newborns, since he already knew about the hydro and was planning to order an ultrasound of Brysons kidneys he decided to also order an echocardiogram (ultrasound ...

Obstructive Defects of the Renal Pelvis (obstructive defects of the renal pelvis, uteropelvic junction obstruction, pelvo-uterero junction obstruction) Term describing a developmental renal abnormality due to partial or complete blockage of the drainage of the kidney pelvis requiring surgical correction. The blockage can also have several causes including: unusual ureter twisting or bending, ureter compression by a blood vessel, malformations of the muscular wall. The blockage leads to an accumulation of urine in the affected region, with several potential effects: nephron damage from compression (hydronephrosis); decreased urine output leading to lack of amniotic fluid (oligohydramnios); respiratory development effects due to the lack of amniotic fluid. ...
PURPOSE: The Urinary Tract Dilation (UTD) grading system for prenatal hydronephrosis (HN) was introduced to address potential shortcomings of the SFU classification. HN resolution is an important patient outcome and frequently discussed during family counselling. Herein we compare these two grading systems and their ability to predict time to HN resolution. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 855 prospectively screened patients between 2009-2015 with prenatal HN due to uretero-pelvic junction-like, primary non-refluxing megaureter or vesico-ureteral reflux; with 454 being excluded due to surgeries, late referrals, absence of postnatal dilation and presence of other anomalies, resulting in 401 eligible patients to be included for analyses ...

Many children are affected by PUJ obstruction, though in most, it may be mild. It is often diagnosed antenatally, and is the most common cause of hydronephrosis seen at this stage. In older children, intermittent pain in the abdomen can occur, often specifically on the side of the kidney, and this can be misdiagnosed as indigestion or other abdominal pains, and might not be exclusively found until an ultrasound scan is performed, revealing a dilated kidney.. ...
There was also a duplicated scrotum, posterior urethral valves with hydronephrosis, abnormal pelvic bones, and a ventricular septal defect. The Beta2-adrenoreceptor coupled to the long splice variant of Gsalpha has properties of a constitutively active receptor.

Common causes of low blood sugar include: Kidney stones. If you can not treat it earlier, it can induce renal obstruction and hydronephrosis, even oppress renal parenchyma cause glomerular sclerosis or death, at last damage the renal function and increase the creatinine level. Low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia, poses a serious health threat for patients with chronic kidney disease, according to a new study. Low blood sugar or glucose levels can lead to hypoglycemia. Because kidneys filter such vast amounts, very subtle variations in what they take back into blood can load the urine with stone forming salts like calcium and oxalate, and cause stones. Another side effect of ketosis is that it reduces your blood pH levels, this making your blood acidic. Researchers are still not able to find a particular food and diet that causes stones, but they have concluded that food that are rich in protein, sugar, and sodium are responsible to trigger the formation of kidney stone in people who are ...
Shortly after admission, the patient had a fever of 40.3, which was treated aggressively with antibiotics. No focus of infection was identified. The patient was oliguric and fluid challenges did not increase urine output. A renal ultrasound showed mild left hydronephrosis. He was having increased oxygen requirement from his baseline, most likely secondary to fluid overload from renal failure. CXR did not show pneumonia. He was placed on the hospital ventilator at family request to see if this would improve things. His oxygen requirement remained the same and his end tidal then also started to climb. He also progressively took less of his own spontaneous breaths over the ventilator rate until he was riding the ventilator rate only. Ventilatory support was tapered and discontinued. He was deemed to have septic shock and acute renal failure. ...

BACKGROUND:Duplicated renal collecting system is a urological anomaly often found in pediatric patients. It is less commonly diagnosed in adulthood, particularly in a pregnant patient. Many point-of-care ultrasonography users may not be aware of this diagnosis, particularly in patients in the emergency department. It is important to recognize the duplicated system because in general, patients will often have hydronephrosis in only one renal pole rather than the entire kidney, which corresponds to an unequal renal function as documented on renal nuclear medicine functional scans. As a consequence, if the sonographer only identifies one ureter and incompletely visualizes the kidney, obstruction of one of the duplicated structures may be missed. CASE REPORT:We report 2 cases of duplicated ureter in patients in the emergency department who present with flank pain and urinary symptoms. Both patients were adult females, one pregnant, with duplicated ureter and severe right upper pole ...
Studies on the induction by furosemide of chromosomal aberrations in mice were inconclusive. Pregnancy Pregnancy Category C -Furosemide has been shown to cause unexplained maternal deaths and abortions in rabbits at 2, 4 and 8 times the maximal recommended human dose. There are no adequate and well-controlled studies Online pregnant women.. LASIX should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus, Online Generic Lasix 40 mg. Treatment during pregnancy requires monitoring of fetal growth because of the potential for higher birth weights. The effects of furosemide on embryonic and fetal development and on pregnant dams were studied in mice, rats and rabbits.. Data Lasix the above studies indicate fetal lethality that can precede maternal deaths. The results of the mouse study and one of the three rabbit studies generic showed an increased incidence and severity of hydronephrosis distention of the renal pelvis and, in some cases, of the ureters ...
Difficult case! I will assume that his stool is negative for occult blood, ESR is normal, has no deceleration in his growth velocity and is otherwise a well adjusted boy. Given his hydronephrosis and intermittent hematuria, I believe that his pain may indeed be nephrogenic in origin. As you stated, he may be experiencing dynamic obstruction of his UPJ. I would suggest doing a provocative test like a Lasix Renal Scan. If induction of diuresis causes a relative obstruction with reproduction of his pain you have made the diagnosis. Other thoughts include Celiac disease. Anti-gliadin antibodies and an intestinal biopsy might be helpful to make the diagnosis. Keep us posted.

I ended up in the hospital New Years night 2006 with sepsis, pyelonephritis and hydronephrosis because that stone scarred my ureter causing it to totally close. The odd part to me is that I hardly had any symptoms and they were intermittent. I did have 2 utis just prior to getting really sick but never made any connection. I ached in my ruq and did see a dr about it but he didnt make any connection to it either. That was oct 05, then a uti around thanksgiving, then for about 5 days in early Dec I kind of felt like I had an infection of sorts because I was having ruq discomfort, r and l flank discomfort, abdominal, back discomfort. One night I was briefly concerned about my heart. I didnt go to the dr for any of this because I didnt have a fever or stomach/intestinal problems and just figured I had a weird bug. I never once considered my kidney or ureter. A week later while at wok on a sat nite, I got the most unbelievable chills to the bone and I was shivering even though I put my winter ...
Schinzel Giedion syndrome is characterized by an unusual facial appearance as well as abnormalities of the skeleton, kidney, hair and brain. Individuals with this disorder have an obstruction of the tube that carries urine from the kidney into the bladder (ureter). This causes the kidney to become swollen as urine accumulates (hydronephrosis).. Failure to grow and develop normally becomes apparent at an early age. Excessive growth of hair as well as widely spaced eyes, a flat midface, low-set ears, a short low-set nose, and a short and wide neck with an excess of skin are typical features of individuals with Schinzel Giedion syndrome.. Abnormalities of the skeleton include widely spaced openings between the bones of the skull (patent fontanelles), and short lower arms and legs. Other skeletal signs may include clubfoot and broad ribs. Typical and specific findings on X-ray are a dense pyramid bone and gap between the two segments of the occipital bone.. Sudden, aimless, uncontrollable discharge ...
