Is The Nephrostomy Tube Accidentally Disengaged Is It Dangerous?
My doctor wanted to ask about the removal of the nephrostomy tube, my father happened to have a tumor in the urinary tract, the tumor covered the urinary tract from the kidneys to the ureter, so that the kidney occurred Hydronephrosis, the right and left kidneys were now installed with nephrostomy tubes, ureteroscopy had been done and the period in the bladder has been removed, then the right and left Nefrostomi tubes are suddenly accidentally pulled out so that they come off, if something happens like that, the hose is pulled out without proper release action (accidentally) is it dangerous / not the doctor? While the urine from the former nephrostomy tube is still seeping. Please answer and thank you.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Nephrostomy tubes are tubes that are inserted from the skin directly into the kidney. This tube will immediately remove urine produced by the kidneys and hold the urine in a nephrostomy bag (so that the urine will not pass through the ureter, bladder, and urethra).
If the nephrostomy tube is pulled out by itself accidentally, it is certainly very dangerous for your father. Urinary output can be disrupted and the father's risk of kidney infection becomes very high. This condition is a condition that requires treatment as soon as possible, so your father must be taken to the hospital as soon as the nephrostomy tube is detached from the kidney.
Immediately take your father to the hospital or control to the urologist for further action, and do not delay the examination to the hospital or to the doctor. If control to the doctor can not be done on the same day, immediately go to the hospital.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
