Role of ultrasound-guided percutaneous antegrade pyelography in malignant obstructive uropathy: A Nigerian experience

Role of ultrasound-guided percutaneous antegrade pyelography in malignant obstructive uropathy: A Nigerian experience

Nigerian Medical Journal 56(3): 225-228

Ultrasound-guided percutaneous nephrostomy of the renal pelvis is a technique that is widely acceptable especially when contrast media is introduced in the procedure of antegrade pyelography. It is a relatively safe procedure that effectively improves renal function in obstructed kidneys. It can be performed in most cases as an alternative to retrograde pyelography. We present our experience and its role in obstructive uropathy due to malignancy.
