Acute unilateral obstructive uropathy

Acute unilateral is a sudden blockage in one of the tubes -LRB- ureters -RRB- that drain urine from the kidneys.See also : Acute bilateral obstructive uropathyChronic unilateral obstructive uropathyChronic bilateral obstructive uropathyObstructive uropathy Which can occur with both unilateral and bilateral patients (though bilateral people nearly always have it, and it only occurs sometimes in unilateral). what did you mean? On a side note, another clue for malignancy is unilateral enlarged nodes as opposed to bilateral enlarged nodes.
Abdominal pain , right or left lower quadrantAbnormal urine color -LRB- tan , cola colored , tea colored -RRB- Back pain , may be on only one sideBlood in the urineFeverFlank pain or pain in the sideSevere enough to require strong pain medicinePain on one side ; it may move to the groin , genitals , and thighPain comes and goes ; intensity changes over minutesFoul - smelling urineHigh blood pressure that has increased recently -LRB- within 2 weeks -RRB- Mental status changesNauseaUrinary frequencyUrinary urgencyUrinary tract infectionVomiting It takes months for the biochemical changes to occur from acute pain to chronic pain and substance P is one of those changes, along with a different part of your brain interpreting the pain signal in CP Vs Acute pain
The goal of treatment is to relieve or reduce the blockage.Antibiotics may be given if there is a urinary tract infection.Stents or drains placed in the ureter or nearby area may provide short - term relief of symptoms . Surgery to repair the underlying cause of the obstruction will usually cure the problem.Kidney surgery , including removal of the kidney -LRB- nephrectomy -RRB- may be needed if kidney function is poor or if there is a bad infection .
Unilateral obstructive uropathy is most often caused by a kidney stone , although injury or other conditions could cause the disorder.When urine flow is blocked , it backs up into the kidney . Everything caused by the endo causing obstructive symptoms.... In view of these findings, patients with conditions that put them at risk for acute kidney failure should check with their doctors before taking any analgesic medicine. This leads to kidney swelling , also called hydronephrosis.You have a greater risk for unilateral obstructive uropathy if you have ureteral stones and tumors , kidney stones , and tumors in nearby body structures such as the uterus and cervix.Acute unilateral obstructive uropathy occurs in 1 in 1,000 people .
The health care provider will perform a physical exam . Pressing with the fingers on -LRB- palpation of -RRB- the belly area may reveal a swollen or tender kidney . Blood pressure may be high.The following tests may be done : Basic metabolic panelComplete blood count -LRB- CBC -RRB- UrinalysisUrine cultureKidney swelling or blockage of the ureter may be seen on these tests : Abdominal CT scanAbdominal ultrasoundIntravenous pyelogram -LRB- IVP -RRB- Kidney scan
Tests & diagnosis
The outcome varies . The disorder may result in permanent damage to the kidney . However , kidney failure usually does not result because the second kidney continues to function . Insufficient kidney function may result from disorders including (but not limited to): Acute kidney failure Chronic kidney failure Lupus nephritis Transplant rejection of a kidney transplant Obstructive uropathy Glomerulonephritis Those are ALL kidney problems yielding high potassium
If you are prone to kidney stones , drink plenty of water -LRB- 6 to 8 glasses per day -RRB- to reduce the chance of their formation.Research suggests that a diet low in sodium and oxalate and high in citrate significantly reduces risk of calcium - based kidney stone formation . The researchers suggest that a diet high in olive oil may indeed prevent the acute pro-coagulant effects of fatty meals and thus prevent sudden heart disease. Consult with a nutritionist for more information on such diets.Seek medical attention if kidney stones persist or come back to identify the cause and to prevent new stones from forming .
Chronic or recurrent urinary tract infectionChronic unilateral obstructive uropathyHypertensionPermanent failure of the affected kidney -LRB- chronic renal failure -RRB- Creatinine is only affected in acute and chronic renal FAILURE. Complications: Acute renal failure Chronic renal failure Interstitial nephritis Renal papillary necrosis (tissue death) Urinary tract infections, chronic or recurrent Hypertension Transitional cell carcinoma of the kidney or ureter Calling your health care provider: Call your health care provider if symptoms indicate analgesic nephropathy may be present
Call your health care provider if you develop flank pain or other symptoms of acute unilateral obstructive.Call your health care provider if symptoms worsen during or after treatment , or if new symptoms develop .
