Clinical History:
Hydronephrosis Acute Renal Failure Left-Renal Hydronephrosis
The left renal pelvis is moderately dilated (up to 15mm in diameter). The proximal ureter is also dilated (3.4mm) for approximately 4.5cm up to an area with a small mineralization in the lumen (2.3 x 1.3mm) and moderate thickening of the ureteral wall. Caudal to <a href=http://www.rabt.org/?cat=2>Omega Replica Seamaster</a> this focal thickening the ureter has a normal size (similar to the right ureter). The right kidney is small (2.6cm long) with a normal shape. There is no evidence of dilation of the renal pelvis or ureter. The urinary bladder is normal. The liver and spleen have homogeneous attenuation. The gastrointestinal tract is normal. The visible portion of the thorax is normal.
1. Moderate to severe hydronephrosis in the left ureter. <a href=http://www.pro6.co.uk/?cat=38>fake omega watches</a>
2. Dilation of the left ureter up to an area with thickening of the ureter with a mineral body in the lumen.
3. Small right kidney. You might consider ruling out a chronic renal disease or less likely a congenital hypoplasia.
The changes are consistent with a left ureteral obstruction caused by a small calculus in the lumen of the ureter. The focal thickening of the ureter can represent a secondary ureteritis but a neoplastic infiltration cannot be ruled out. This renal obstruction is likely the cause of the reported acute renal failure.
