The discharge of urine depends on the ventilation of the urinary tract and the function of normal urination. Duct stenosis or obstruction of any part of the urinary tract and the normal function of neuromuscular disorders, eventually lead to kidney seeper, expansion, thinning of the renal parenchyma and renal function impairment, if both sides obstruction, uremia in serious consequences.
What causes kidney seeper: some of the reasons for the urine stream obstruction, can be congenital, such as narrow kidney, ureter connection department, urethral valves, such as horseshoe kidney, acquired diseases such as stones, tumor, hyperplasia of prostate and bladder neck contracture. It can also be caused by the obstruction of the fibrous or swollen body of the urinary tract, such as retroperitoneal fibrosis and lymphoma. It can also be a nerve muscle disorder in the urinary tract, such as giant ureteral disease. Obstruction is also acute and chronic, and acute obstruction causes the kidney to be completely lost in a short period of time, and the fluid in the kidney is not obvious. Chronic obstruction can make kidney water more than 1000 ml. If kidney seeper once intercurrent infection, obstruction, not lifted infection is difficult to cure, infection and accelerate the destruction of the kidneys, form a vicious circle, and even form pus kidney.
