What do renal pelvis & calyces with no hydronephrosis mean?

What do renal pelvis & calyces with no hydronephrosis mean?

Probably normal...: Most likely your situation is a normal variant of the vastly wide range of normal anatomies for the human kidney. While hydronephrosis indicates an abnormally "swollen kidney", you specifically state that is not your case. The words "pelvis" and "calyces" are normal anatomical terms used to describe specific areas of the kidney--neither term inherently suggesting any abnormality. So you can relax! ...Read more

Mid pole calculus is noted in my right kidney measuring 8.7 mm and mild hydronephrosis with extra renal pelvis is seen in the both kidneys.

Mid pole calculus is noted in my right kidney measuring 8.7 mm and mild hydronephrosis with extra renal pelvis is seen in the both kidneys.

See professionals...: See an well-experienced urologist to decide if it's necessary to intervene; if needed, at what price? For your condition, a professional needs to share the balancing thought on the need and possibility of care before committing its removal, which usually can be done through the penis with fine scope and laser.

For detail, check with experts.

Best wish. .. ...Read more

Large exophytic R renal cyst 12.9x9.8x10.7 kidney 11.5 vert. Span. Note says mild fullness R renal pelvis, no true hydronephrosis? Meaning??

Large exophytic R renal cyst 12.9x9.8x10.7 kidney 11.5 vert. Span. Note says mild fullness R renal pelvis, no true hydronephrosis? Meaning??

See below: Simple cysts are of no consequence unless there is pain involved. Your cyst is larger than usual, but if you do not have pain I would not worry. Mild fulness of R renal pelvis is just a radiographic finding, I would not worry as it has no real significance as long as there is no hydronephrosis. ...Read more

What to do if I'm 36 wks preg, baby is diagnosed fetal hydronephrosis, renal pelvis measures 7.5cm, will she lose her kidney?

What to do if I'm 36 wks preg, baby is diagnosed fetal hydronephrosis, renal pelvis measures 7.5cm, will she lose her kidney?

Do nothing now: Baby is almost certainly perfectly OK. If renal pelvis 7.5mm, nothing to worry about & will 99 - 100% settle down as a normal kidney. 7.5 cm is very large & will almost certainly require intervention. Will require:- pediatric urologist, post natal US, VCUG & nuclear scan after birth to evaluate swollen kidney for function. Removal only if no or essentially no function. Life with 1 kidney is OK. ...Read more

"mild fullness of renal pelvic bilaterally could represent minimal hydronephrosis." found on pelvic/vaginal ultrasound. Could this be from all the watr I had to drink and hold bladder? If no/what?

"mild fullness of renal pelvic bilaterally could represent minimal hydronephrosis." found on pelvic/vaginal ultrasound. Could this be from all the watr I had to drink and hold bladder? If no/what?

Could be: For pelvic ultrasound the bladder usually needs to be full and therefore encouraged to drink a lot of water. The interpretation of the kidneys sounds like mild amount of fluid in the collecting systems. Unless you are having urinary infections, kidney pain, or kidney stones, this finding is usually insignicant. In some people full bladder can cause back pressure and prominent renal pelves. ...Read more

Unborn baby has 'renal pelvis dilation' at 32 weeks. What does this mean?

Unborn baby has 'renal pelvis dilation' at 32 weeks. What does this mean?

Fetal hydronephrosis: Means that kidney pelvis (Funnel for urine before it enters "drainpipe" to bladder) is retaining some urine. Means that there may be degree of blockage, usually of little importance, to urine flowing out of kidney. Very common in Pediatric Urology. Baby needs kidney ultrasound after birth. Wait 2 - 4 weeks if prenatal renal pelvis dilatation is mild. Soon after birth if severe & see Pedi Urologist ...Read more

My baby born recently and his ultrasound report shows bilateral prominent foetal renal pelvis (right 4.8mm & left 7.8 mm). What is the risk factor?

Needs followup: There is a higher risk of a urinary tract problem if the measurement is greater than 10 mm on either side. At this point the study should be repeated again after 4-6 wks and it will sometimes normalize. ...Read more

In a ultrasound what does the dilation of the right renal pelvis mean?

In a ultrasound what does the dilation of the right renal pelvis mean?

Dilatation: A dilated renal pelvis means that structure #6 in the attached picture is dilated. This is where the urine collects before entering the ureter and heading to the bladder. Dilatation can be normal in some people, especially if the rest of the system is not dilated. ...Read more

Does "prominent appearance of the right renal pelvis and ureter which measures 1cm" from renal ultrasound mean anything?

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

Ct scan conclusion: 11 mm calculus rt renal pelvis w fullness to the rt collecting system. What does this mean and what should I do? There is no pain

Ct scan conclusion: 11 mm calculus rt renal pelvis w fullness to the rt collecting system. What does this mean and what should I do? There is no pain

Kidney stone: On CT we use the cutoff of 5 mm for stones that can be treated conservatively. Stones larger than this need to be removed. The "fullness" means the urine isn't passing into the bladder and it is backing up, causing the drainage tube to dilate. ...Read more

Can renal pelvis be dislodged from the kidney and if so, what can cause this to happen?

No, clarification: Renal pelvis is part of the kidney structure - collecting system that allows the urine to passinto the ureter. So renal pelvis cannot be dislodged from the uterus. I suggest you clarify with your physician about the report. ...Read more

How can I have an 11mm calculus rt renal pelvis w fullness to the rt collecting system for a long time and it not be painful at all?

Only partial block: The reason for no pain is incomplete blockage to the UPJ (junction of ureter to renal pelvis). Sooner or later an 11mm stone will give trouble. You should get it taken care of. Good luck. ...Read more

Is a distended renal pelvis congenital, or can it have another cause? I am 53 and it is only recently discovered after hysterectomy

Is a distended renal pelvis congenital, or can it have another cause? I am 53 and it is only recently discovered after hysterectomy

See below: A distended renal pelvis can indicate obstruction of urine flow from the kidney into the ureter. This can be due a congenital malformation called upj obstruction, but can also be due to other blockages such as a stricture or stone in the ureter, or from extrinsic compression of ureter from something else. Then again, it can just be a redundant renal pelvis that is not blocked. See a urologist. ...Read more

How does pyelonephritis affect the renal pelvis?

Pyelonephritis: Although pyelonephritis may affect all areas of the renal parenchyma, the question addresses the pelvis. One can get papillary necrosis with some of the necrotic papillae breaking off and either obstructing the pelvis, or fragments (micro or macro) of material may appear in the urine. Radiologically there may be classic calyceal deformities seen. This usually involves both kidneys. ...Read more

What are complications of renal pelvis or ureter cancer?

What are complications of renal pelvis or ureter cancer?

Bleeding: Cancer in these areas usually causes microscopic or visible blood in the urine. It can also cause obstruction to the outflow of urine from the kidney and cause kidney swelling (hydronephrosis). This then can also cause kidney pain in the flank area when the kidney becomes obstructed, similar to the pain from a kidney stone. If left untreated, these tumors tend to grow and metastasize. ...Read more

I have Tiny concretions Right kidney lower pole and left Renal pelvis. What are its effects?

Usually nothing!: They may represent PRIOR infection or tiny stones. They have no significance unless they are small stones in which case they could block (obstruct) the kidney involved. Knowing they are there is the important thing. Your Primary Care Provider will determine if a consultation with a UROLOGIST is necessary

My 61 year old friend discovered papillary cells in his ureter and renal pelvis. Should he take afinotib after the kidney and ureter are removed?

She should be seeing: An oncologist can address your questions better. From what you have written, I suspect that your friend has cancer (? Renal-pelvis/ureter). We first need to know if this is a kidney cancer or a transistional cell cancer (tcc of the renal pelvis).
Surgery is the main treatment unless there is already spread of the tumor in which case some of the drugs like you mentioned (axitinib/afinitor) may be useful. ...Read more
