Moreover, the increase in urinary excretion of NKCC2 in BUO-7 group could be a potential additional biomarker of renal function recovery, suitable to complete the panel of biomarkers currently compiled to evaluate the onset and recovery of obstructive nephropathy
A novel STAT3 inhibitor, S31-201, attenuates renal interstitial fibroblast activation and interstitial fibrosis in obstructive nephropathy
. Kidney Int.
This case is interesting because direct compression of urethra caused by massive inguinal hernia lead to obstructive nephropathy
. Inguinal hernias are more often direct and can be limited to the inguinal canal or can reach the scrotum.
Our results shed light on the management of renal fibrosis caused by obstructive nephropathy
Diagnostic performance of urinary kidney injury molecule-1 (KIM-1) and neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) for acute kidney injury in obstructive nephropathy
Kidney biopsy images can provide an estimation of pathogenesis in the obstructive nephropathy
as a result of malignant neoplasms: A Single Centre Experience.
Congenital obstructive nephropathy
is the primary cause of renal insufficiency in children.[sup.1] Congenital ureteral obstruction is distinguished by the profound impairment of kidney functions.[sup.2] Previous studies have shown that unilateral ureteral complete obstruction in adult rats caused impairment of urinary concentrating ability.[sup.3,4] However, neonatal partial unilateral ureteral obstruction (PUUO) as an experimental model for congenital obstructive nephropathy
is clinically much more common than complete obstruction.
The sloughed papillae may obstruct urinary tract outflow leading to obstructive nephropathy
and consequently renal failure .
The obstructive nephropathy
is not a simple result of mechanical impairment to urine flow but a complex syndrome resulting in alterations of both glomerular hemodynamics and tubular function caused by the interaction of a variety of vasoactive factors and cytokines that are activated in response to obstruction.
The 3rd most common cause in our study was obstructive nephropathy
but worldwide it is glomerulonephritis.
in children: long-term progression after relief of posterior urethral valve.
