Hydronephrosis describes the condition where the urine collecting system of the kidney is dilated. This may be a normal variant or it may be due to an underlying illness or medical condition.
Normally, the kidney filters waste products from blood and disposes of it in the urine. The urine drains into individual calyces that form the renal pelvis. This empties into the ureter, a tube that connects the kidney to the bladder. The urethra is the tube that empties the bladder.
While hindrance or blockage is the most frequent cause of hydronephrosis, it may be due to problems that occur congenitally in a foetus (prenatal) or may be a physiologic response to pregnancy. Theoretically, hydronephrosis specifically describes dilation and swelling of the kidney, while the term hydroureter is used to describe inflammation of the ureter. Hydronephrosis may be unilateral involving just one kidney or bilateral involving both. A difficulty of hydronephrosis is decreased kidney function. The increased pressure of extra fluid within the kidney decreases the blood filtration rate and may cause structural harm to kidney cells. This decrease in function is reversible if the fundamental condition is corrected but if the hydronephrosis lasts many weeks, the damage may be lasting.
WHAT CAUSES HYDRONEPHROSIS?
There are abundant causes of hydronephrosis that are categorized based upon the location of the swelling and whether the cause is intrinsic (located within the urinary collecting system), extrinsic (outside of the collecting system) or if it due to a modification in function.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF HYDRONEPHROSIS?
There may or may not be direct symptoms of hydronephrosis depending upon the underlying cause. Individuals with acute hydronephrosis, for example symptoms from renal colic due to a kidney stone begin with an acute onset of intense flank or back pain radiating to the groin, associated with nausea, vomiting, and sweating. Colicky pain comes and goes and its intensity may cause the person to writhe or roll around or pace in pain. There may be blood seen in the urine.
TREATMENT FOR HYDRONEPHROSIS
The objective of treatment for hydronephrosis is to resume the free flow of urine from the kidney and decrease the swelling and pressure that builds up and decreases kidney function. The preliminary care for the patient is aimed at minimizing pain and preventing urinary tract infections. Otherwise, surgical involvement may be required. The timing of the process depends upon the underlying cause of hydronephrosis and hydroureter and the associated medical conditions that may be present. For example, patients with a kidney stone may be allowed 1-2 weeks to pass the stone with only supportive pain control if urine flow is not completely blocked by the stone. If, however, the patient develops an infection or if they only have one kidney, surgical intervention may be done emergently to remove the stone.
Shock wave lithotripsy (SWL or extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy) is the most common treatment for kidney stones in the U.S. Shock waves from outside the body are targeted at a kidney stone causing the stone to fragment into tiny pieces that are able to be passed out of the urinary tract in the urine. Some conditions, for example retroperitoneal fibrosis or tumours, may require steroid therapy, a formal operation or laparoscopy to relieve the hydronephrosis or hydroureter while oral alkalinization therapy may be used to dissolve uric acid kidney stones.
