Effectiveness of percutaneous nephrostomy in reversing obstructive renal failure

, : Effectiveness of percutaneous nephrostomy in reversing obstructive renal failure. Jpma. Journal of the Pakistan Medical Association 45(1): 16-18

A retrospective analysis of 34 patients of obstructive renal failure, initially managed by percutaneous nephrostomy was performed. Pre procedure blood biochemical profile was compared with upto one week follow-up of blood chemistry. There was a decline of 71.1% and 56.08% (P-values 0.0001 and 0.0028) in the mean values of serum creatinine and blood urea nitrogen respectively at 7 days after the procedure. Improvement in blood biochemical profile was solely dependent on performance of percutaneous nephrostomy.
