9) In a Taiwanese study by Lee et al, LVI represented a significant prognosticator for both CSS and MFS in multivariate analysis only in patients with ureteral tumours, but not in those with pyelocaliceal tumours.
Duplex system is explained as the kidney with two pyelocaliceal systems, which may have either single or bifid ureter (partial duplication) or double ureterdraining separately into the urinary bladder (complete duplication), with a single renal parenchyma that is drained by two pyelocaliceal systems4.
Diuretic effect is indicated in case of small peripheral edema, hypertension, after endoscopic interventions, and lithokinetic therapy of small stones of pyelocaliceal system and ureters [16].
This results in a defective propagation of the electrical activity produced by a pacemaker located in the pyelocaliceal region.
A hydrophilic guidewire was placed from the nephrostomy tract into the right pyelocaliceal system and the tract was dilated up to 14 Fr via the Retrace ureteral access sheath 12/14.
Stone-containing pyelocaliceal diverticulum: embryogenic, anatomic, radiologic and clinical characteristics.
At ultrasonic scanning (USS) of organs of urinary system paid attention to morphological changes of pyelocaliceal system and a parenchyma of kidneys (hydronephrosis, hydrocalycosis, cystic formations, tumors, etc.
5 side Grade of the pyelocaliceal system stasis No dilatation Grade 0 Dilated ureter or pelvis but normal calicies Grade 1 Dilatation in calicies Grade 2 Deformation in calicies and deterioration in Grade 3 papillary impression Grade of the ureteral obstruction Normal ureteral passage Grade 0 Minimal stasis due to physiologic causes Grade 1 (iliac artery cross etc.
Reflux nephropathy, which also is called chronic nonobstructive pyelonephritis, is defined as reflux of urine from the urinary bladder through an incompetent vesicoureteral junction and into the ureter and pyelocaliceal system and, eventually, into the renal parenchyma, without mechanical obstruction of the urine outflow tract.
