Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL) is a renal lithiasis treatment. It is usually two staged: it begins in the lithotomy position for ureteral catheter placement and retrograde pyelography ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether Renalof administration promotes partial or total dissolution of urinary calculi and improves physicochemical parameters and metabolic acti...
Patients who are overweight or obese, diabetic or not, share with those who are suffering from uric stones the same way to remove abnormal acidity of the body in urine, ie a kidney ammonio...
Renal lithiasis affects a wide range of the population, ranging from 4 to 15% according to the population sample studied. Among all stones, it is estimated that uric stones account for bet...
This is a single-center, randomized, single-blind, investigator-initiated, pharmacological study with a parallel design. Patients with non-ACS undergoing primary percutaneous coronary inte...
High on-treatment platelet reactivity (HPR) under clopidogrel treatment is frequently observed in hemodialysis (HD) patients. In such patients, 10mg of prasugrel has reportedly inhibited platelet reac...
Primary hyperoxaluria (PH) is a very rare genetic disorder; it is characterized by total or partial deficiency of the enzymes related to the metabolism of glyoxylate, with an overproduction of calcium...
Renal fibrosis is a common outcome of nearly all kinds of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and eventually progresses to end-stage renal disease. The identification of an optimal biomarker of renal fibrosi...
Hypercalciuria might be revealed during the differential diagnosis of hematuria accompanying renal lithiasis (RL). In spite of this, diagnostic accuracy of calcium urinary excretion might be affected ...
To report the case of a 29 year-old patient presenting with renal splenosis along with a complete review of literature on this condition. Splenosis is a frequent condition following abdominal trauma o...
A condition characterized by the formation of CALCULI and concretions in the hollow organs or ducts of the body. They occur most often in the gallbladder, kidney, and lower urinary tract.
The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).
Persistent high BLOOD PRESSURE due to KIDNEY DISEASES, such as those involving the renal parenchyma, the renal vasculature, or tumors that secrete RENIN.
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level in the ability to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal insufficiency can be classified by the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE. The most severe form is KIDNEY FAILURE. Renal function may deteriorate slowly (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, CHRONIC) or precipitously (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, ACUTE).
Distention of KIDNEY with the presence of PUS and suppurative destruction of the renal parenchyma. It is often associated with renal obstruction and can lead to total or nearly total loss of renal function.
