What Does Prominence Of Left Renal Collecting System Without Calyceal Dilatation Mean
What does mild fullness of the right renal collecting system without definite obstructing calculi mean ?
Minimal swelling: Swelling of major urine ducts between collecting tubules and kidney pelvis, which 'funnel' draining all urine from kidney into the ureter. Mild fullness, usually within normal limits. Can signify minimal partial kidney obstruction from an anatomic narrowing, or from infection. Can also be from ureteral obstruction at bladder level, bladder neck ot urethra or bladder reflux or hight urine flow rate. ...Read more
Renal anatomy: The solid tissue of the kidney is divided into an outer cortex and inner medulla. The blood is filtered and urine and is produced here. Urine is emptied into the collecting system of the renal pelvis. The ureters then transport urine to the bladder. Prominence or enlargement of the collecting system can sometimes indicate obstruction to this outflow. Bilateral means it is seen on both sides. ...Read more
Transient problem: The word "Transient" means lasting only for a short time. So, it appears that the dilation of the renal collecting structures was due to a problem that was not permanent and resolved. That resolution relieved the dilation. Ask the physician (P) who ordered the imaging studies for a more informed opinion, as the P knows the patient and the case better than another P. Good luck. ...Read more
Kidney change: This indicates a slight swelling of soft calyx structures. This bulging can be normal. It can also appear if there is a minor partial block of a ureter below from a stone or gravel. ...Read more
Does "prominent appearance of the right renal pelvis and ureter which measures 1cm" from renal ultrasound mean anything?
It could: When something blocks the drainage of urine from the kidney to the bladder, the renal pelvis and ureter dilate or blow up like a balloon. There is a range of normal, though, and some people have a bigger renal pelvis than others. If it is just "prominent" it may be normal. The more dilated, the more likely there is a real problem. Depending on your symptoms, it may require more testing. ...Read more
Abdominal ultrasound showed some dilation of the calyceal system without hydronephrosis. No masses or stones. Does this mean anything?
Dilation no hydronep: This would depend on what else is going on. Need more information. ...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
Recent cat showed prominence of the right renal pelvis without urethral dilatation or calculus suggests an incomplete upj obstruction what does this m?
It means incomplete: obstruction where the pelvis of the kidney turns into the ureter. which is high up in the urinary tract. I would follow up with a urologist ...Read more
What does it mean when a renal CT scan shows, thinning of the cortex, punctate calcification (with no stones), and contrast extending into the calyx.
Atrophy: Renal cortical thinning is seen due to functional loss of nephrons. There are many causes of "medical renal disease"which result in atrophy. Hypertension is the leading cause. Punctuate calcification s are very tiny stones. Contrast is supposed to be in the calyx, so i'm uncertain why that was stated. Was there anything else related to that statement? ...Read more
Can doctors tell me what does mild fullness of left pelvicalyceal system and ectatic left ureter mean?
Kidney: This description is of your kidney and ureteral anatomy. A full explanation, which you deserve, is best given by a urologist who has the x-rays and can review the findings and their meanings with you. ...Read more
Pelvic CT for micro hematuria revealed mild prominence of renal collecting system in the calyces bilaterally. No obstruction. Meaning?
Renal anatomy: The solid tissue of the kidney is comprised of an outer cortex and inner medulla. The blood is filtered and urine and is produced here. Urine is emptied into the collecting system, which begins at the calyces. Ultimately, the ureters transport urine to the bladder. Prominence or enlargement of the collecting system can sometimes indication obstruction to this outflow, which was not found. ...Read more
What does this mean? Upper normal to borderline hydronephrosis left kidney of uncertain significance. The left ureteral jet seen which excludes a complete but
not incomplete left ureteral obstruction.
There is a partial duplication of the right ureteral system with confluence proximal to urinary bladder. What does this mean in simple terms?
Older person: Usually a sign of far advanced age in many older folks and is associated with some decreased mental acuity which is what you see anyway in people with far advanced age. Not reversible. Be nice told people! ...Read more
