Renal ptosis refers to the movement of the kidneys with respiratory activity beyond the normal range, which results in urinary and other symptoms. Normal kidneys generally have activity within 3cm as breathing activity. Renal ptosis is more common in young women. In our hospital, a group of 100 cases of renal ptosis were analyzed, and women accounted for 71%. The age is more than 20~40 years old (83%), which is related to the heavy physical load of young and middle-aged women, the value of child-bearing age, the relaxation of abdominal wall after birth and the sudden decrease of postpartum abdominal pressure. The course of disease in June to 3 years accounted for 60%, mostly due to lumbar acid, chronic urinary tract infection, repeated hematuria and other symptoms, medical care when you can get sick kidney and get the diagnosis.
There are three main symptoms of renal ptosis: urinary system symptoms and 92% of lumbar pain. More than 50% of patients have chronic urinary tract infection symptoms, mostly urinary frequency, urgency and other bladder irritation symptoms. 1/3 is also associated with a history of low fever or recurrent fever. Occasionally lower extremity edema and other manifestations. The symptoms of the digestive system, which are caused by the pull of the abdominal plexus during renal activity, can cause digestive symptoms, bloating, nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite. Neurological symptoms, such patients are often more intense, accompanied by insomnia, dizziness, fatigue, memory loss, etc., the incidence of about 1/5. The occurrence of these symptoms is not directly proportional to the extent of renal ptosis. Sometimes, though not very heavy, it can cause more pronounced symptoms.
Experience: in 46% of cases, there is percussion pain in the renal region. The right kidney was palpable in 64% of the left and 22% in the left. Because of the lower location of the anatomical right kidney, the renal fossa is shallow, and once it is attacked by the liver, the right renal ptosis is also larger than the left side.
