Malrotation Of Right Kidney
Yes: Congenital UPJ (ureteropelvic junction) obstruction often presents with febrile urinary tract infection, and requires surgical repair. ...Read more
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more

Case of PUJ stenosis Rt side,Rt moderate hydronephrosis with reduction of renal parenchymal thickness 7mm & 1.4cm stone in lower calyx of Rt kidney. ?
Here are some ...: Apparently, the condition of your right kidney has been chronic, most likely, inborn. From what you described, this kidney may be still salvageable by surgery – either open or laparoscopy with or without robotic assistance. I'm sure, before the procedure, a renal nuclear scan can be done to define the residual function of right kidney. For more detail, ask and talk with your doctor. Best wish. ...Read more
Not to worry: This is rare and i trust the diagnosis is correct (i.e., not a scarred kidney from illness) and there's no genetic syndrome obvious. I'm also assuming that this was discovered incidentally, that your left kidney is normal, and that your kidney function is good. You can't donate your left kidney to somebody you love. If i'm correct, you just need to protect your good kidney. ...Read more
In your opinion what treatment for Punctate nonobstructing left upper pole renal stone. 15 mm cyst lower pole left kidney
with milk of calcium.
Treatment for non obstructing 2.25 CM kidney stone in upper pole of right kidney ? Could the stone be causing abdominal & upper leg pain? Headache?
Probably not: A non-obstructing stone may cause blood in the urine but should not be causing pain especially headache or thigh pain. Theoretically a large kidney stone that is not obstructing might cause some pain. Generally that would be back pain or flank pain rather than abdominal pain. I recommend you discuss with your physician the radiology report generated by the radiologist. ...Read more
What does it mean after passing kidney stones:" there is anterior rotation of the left renal access congenital?"
Congenital anomaly: The fetal kidneys undergo a 90° rotation around their longitudinal axis during their ascent from the pelvis before they reach their final position by the end of the 8th week of fetal life. Abnormal rotation may partially obstruct the junction of the kidney & ureter, the tube that leads to the bladder, increasing the risk of having kidney stones & upper urinary tract infections. ...Read more
Extra renal pelvis : The pelvis of the kidney is middle where everything centers. As urine is made by filtering blood this area collects urine then leads out through ureters to bladder. You have a more extensive area that resides in part outside the parameters of the kidney. Sometimes the appearance of this may be the result of obstruction. In general the concern is a larger pelvis means urine is stagnant. ...Read more
In my kidney ultrasound the result is normal size of kidneys with bilateral diffuse parenchymal disease,normal sonogram of the urinary bladder.
Not sure: what the question is, but there are numerous potential causes for abnormal appearing kidneys on ultrasound. Best to speak with your doctor about the results. The results have to be interpreted in the context of your entire clinical picture, the appearance on ultrasound is entirely nonspecific. ...Read more
I have few calculi in upper and mild calyx largest measuring 5mm at right kidney. calculus measuring 4mm in left kidney. Along with left minimal hydroureteronephrosis with dilated entire left uretre.
See urologist: Your calculi seem not large enough for lithotripsy. These may pass on their own. The passage may be facilitated by placing a stent. It would be prudent to consult a urologist for proper treatment. Left untreated, even stones, this small, can damage the kidney. Drink enough water every day so that your urine is mostly colorless. ...Read more
What is calyceal diverticulum in the right kidney mean? I have scaring from previous kidney infections.
Renal diverticulum: Calyceal diverticulum is a relatively uncommon cyst-like lesion, often perceived by ultrasound examination of the kidneys. It is a urine-containing cavity within the kidney, often adjacent to the urine collecting system, communicating with the collecting system through a narrow channel. ...Read more
Upper quadrant pain. spleen borderline size 12.1cm, mild bilateral pelviectasis of kidneys. minimal R-side hydronephrosis. peripelvic cyst. Normal?
Probably: Pelviectasis is a general term used to describe dilation of the renal pelvis, or collecting system of the kidney and, generally, is clinically insignificant. Hydronephrosis also refers to dilation of the renal pelvis, But has the added connotation that the pathology was caused by an obstructive process, such as a kidney stone or in your case the peripelvic cyst of Rt kidney. Unremarkable finding. ...Read more
What is chronic pyelonephritis and what is focal area scarring in the lower pole of the left kidney?
Chronic Pyelo: Chronic pyelonephritis is the result of any process in the kidney that causes prolonged inflammation and fibrosis (scarring). Common causes include: persistent or recurrent renal infections, vesicoureteral reflux (urine going backwards into the kidney), or urinary tract obstruction. A board certified urologist or nephrologist are the best doctors to review these types of findings. ...Read more
What is the best treatment for left sided proximal ureteral calculus 1 CM in size with hydronephrosis and mild hydroureter?
See answer: For a 1 cm proximal ureteral calculus, both ureteroscopy with holmium:yag laser lithotripsy and extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (eswl) are acceptable treatment options. The potential advantages of eswl: non-invasive, less morbidity, and lesser anesthesia and analgesic requirement. Disadvantages of eswl: less successful (~70-80%) vs ureteroscopy (~80-90%) and higher retreatment rate. ...Read more
Radiating pain: the nerves of the appendix also innervates the entire colon. When you push on the left side you and then release the nerves are stimulated. Since the appendix is inflamed the distention of the left transmits to the right and you sense the pain. The visceral peritoneum is directly attached. If the appendix is ruptured then the parietal peritoneum is inflamed and the test no longer holds. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
