D) Diuretic renogram showing left sided delayed renal function as curve Is decreased.
Among them, 113 patients who underwent a renogram one year postoperatively were enrolled in the present study.
Patient age, preoperative and postoperative length of follow-up, antero-posterior pelvic diameter (PD) measurement, findings on ultrasound (US), 99mTc-DMSA renal SPECT, diuretic renogram (DTPA/MAG3) and vesico- cysto-urethrography (VCUG) as well as all relevant complications were recorded.
If the VCUG is normal and there is increased dilation of the renal pelvis during the follow-up, a diuretic renogram with DTPA or MAG3 or an excretory urography should be performed, depending on the patient's age and renal maturity.
It is tempting to interpret the drainage as shown on renogram curves, but this is not reproducible.
Subsequently a dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) renogram showed Less than 1% function from the right kidney.
Renogram scintigraphy (Tc-99m MAG-3 dose 268 MBq) showed a baseline right kidney with good perfusion, uptake, and delayed excretion, as well as a relative function of 50%.
A lasix renogram was then performed, which verified that the ureterovesical junction was obstructed.
Intravenous urogram (IVU) and DTPA renogram revealed a non-functioning left kidney.
A renogram confirmed that the right kidney had been severely affected by the subsequent stone burden, now contributing only 10.
