Obstructive Nephropathy News and Research

RSS
Obstructive nephropathy, also know as uropathy, refers to the syndrome caused by urinary tract obstruction, either functional or anatomic. It includes urinary tract dilatation, impedance and the resulting slowing of urine flow, change in the pressure inside the kidney tubular system and impaired kidney function. Blockage to the flow of urine leads to hydronephrosis and hydroureter.
