Dilatation: Caliectasis is a dilatation of the kidneys' urine collecting tubes within the kidney itself. It can reflect some degree of obstruction, infection, or reflux of urine from the bladder to the kidney. Stasis of urine in the upper ureter has a similar list or possible causes.

A 31-year-old male asked:
How does the kidney normally concentrate urine?
1 doctor answer • 1 doctor weighed in

Kidney function: The kidney concentrates urine by regulating the amount of fluid circulating through it. It either absorbs water or lets it pass through depending on the circulating volume of blood or plasma going through it. It also excretes waste products. The process is quite complicated.
