Methods most frequently used in the diagnosis of renal diseases leading to nephrectomy

Methods most frequently used in the diagnosis of renal diseases leading to nephrectomy

Khirurgiia 55(5): 8-10

In the past few years, the progress of science and technology, and introduction of new diagnostic and treatment methods (echography, isotope study, computerized axial tomography, renovasography, magnetic resonance imaging and others) have contributed greatly to early detection and timely treatment of pathological processes involving the kidney (ZK El-Zein, 1995). After practical implementation of new clinical methods of examination it becomes possible to gain better insight into the undelying causes and character of renal diseases (T. Patrashkov, 1982). The study covers 388 patients subjected to nephrectomy for various diseases of the kidneys and urether, diagnosed and treated in the Department of Urology-University Hospital "Alexandrovska", over the period 1990 through 1995. The commonest diagnostic methods used to make diagnosis prior to nephrectomy include: 1. Survey roentgenography of kidneys, urethers and urinary bladder (KUB)--364 (93.81%). 2. Venous urography--320 (82.47%). 3. Echography--302 (77.83%). (Antegrade pyelography--2 (0.51%). 4. Isotope nephrogram (ING)--212 (54.63%). 5. Scintography of kidneys--126 (32.47%). 6. Computerized axial tomography (CAT)--82 (21.13%)/(70.68%) among 116 renal tumor nephrectomies. 7. Renovasography--82 (21.13%). 8. Retrograde pyelography--48 (12.37%). 9. Gamma-camera--10 (2.57%). 10. Cystoscopy--6 (1.54%). 11. Ureterorenoscopy--2 (0.51%). Presumably, apart from the new "noninvasive" methods of study (computerized axial tomography--CAT and echography), the conventional venous urography has by no means lost its popularity.
