Treatment of Bilateral obstructive uropathy


Treatment of obstructive uropathy is a common urological referral. The two treatment options are nephrostomy tube or ureteric stent insertion. Both are equally effective at providing collecting system drainage and as both have different specific advantages and disadvantages, choice is often made on a case-by-case basis. Percutaneous nephrostomy has the advantages of bypassing the level of ureteric obstruction and not requiring a general anaesthetic, which can sometimes lead to deterioration in an already acutely unwell patient. The procedure can be technically difficulty in overweight patients, and those without hydronephrosis, and is not without risk of significant haemorrhage. Retrograde uretericstent insertion has a lower rate of significant bleeding than percutaneous nephrostomy insertion; however it is sometimes not possible to gain access to the kidney, such as in cases of large impacted stones or abnormal urinary tract anatomy due to pelvic disease. Here, we present a case with a rare cause of bilateral ureteric obstruction secondary to an iatrogenic pelvic haematoma.

The Journal of Clinical Nephrology and Therapeutics  publishes scientific manuscripts that are directly or indirectly based on variegated aspects of clinical nephrology, diabetic nephropathy, pediatric nephrology, renal physiology, renal histopathology, immunobiology, intensive care nephrology and ischemic nephropathy.

The journal most specifically emphasizes on the propagation of research developments that may contribute in the furtherance of research and clinical implementation of novel tools as well as adept clinical techniques including renal transplantation, dialysis, diagnostic kidney imaging, aging and kidney disease, hemodialysis, body fluid volume composition, nephron endowment and erythropoietin therapy.

The journal accepts original submissions in the form of Research Articles, Review Articles, Short Communications, Opinion Articles, Case Reports and Commentaries. Acceptance or rejection of the manuscript solely depends upon the comments of independent reviewers. Positive review by at least two reviewers is mandatory for the acceptance and publication of any citable manuscript.

You may submit manuscripts as an email attachment to the following mail-id:
