Definition Of Debris / Calcification In The Ureter?
My mother based on the results of abdominal ultrasound had swelling in the right kidney, after a BNO-IVP test the results showed mild dextra hydronephrosis, left proximal ureteral kinking, left distal ureteral debris / calcification. So that is my question, what is the purpose of debris / calcification in the distal ureter the? Then if there is swelling of the kidneys, is there a need for certain surgery or can it be normal again with the help of medication? We plan to visit a urology specialist on Monday. Thank you for your response later, all of you doctors.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Kidney swelling (hydronephrosis) identified through BNO-IVP examination can be caused by several possibilities, including kidney stones, kidney tumors, cysts, or pressure from outside the urinary tract (for example: tumors from other organs around the urinary tract). Calcification of the urinary tract is the deposition (deposition) of calcium salts. These findings indicate the possibility of a blockage in the end of the ureter that causes obstruction of the flow out of urine so as to make the kidneys swell. Nevertheless, this still needs to be consulted with a urology specialist who treats your mother. The BNO-IVP examination is a supporting examination whose interpretation must be based on the patient's clinical information, which is obtained through history taking and physical examination by the doctor who handles the patient directly. Handling of cases of kidney swelling due to blockage of the ureter needs to be adjusted to the cause and severity. The method that can be considered is the installation of channels to drain urine from the kidneys directly outside the body. The cause of the blockage must be overcome to prevent the recurrence of kidney swelling. If there is an accompanying urinary tract infection, your doctor may also give antibiotics and reduce fever / pain.
As a recommendation, the patient is advised to consume the amount of fluid recommended by the doctor in charge of the patient. To enrich insight, you can read articles about kidney swelling. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
