US Market Report for Nephostromy Devices 2016 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "US Market Report for Nephostromy Devices 2016" report to their offering.

A nephrostomy may also be performed when there is a hole in the ureter or bladder and urine is leaking into the body, or as a diagnostic procedure to assess kidney function. Additional functions for nephrostomies include creating access for other endourological procedures including endoscopies, intracorporeal lithotripsy and the clearing of ureteropelvic junction obstructions (UPJ).

Percutaneous nephrostomy (PCN) procedures create drainage of urine from the upper part of the urinary system to an external urinary collection bag. This is accomplished by puncturing the skin and inserting a catheter, also known as a nephrostomy drainage tube, into the renal pelvis. Under normal circumstances, urine travels between the kidneys and bladder through the ureters.

When a blockage prevents this flow, ureteral stents are usually threaded into the ureter as a solution. In cases where this is not the best option, a nephrostomy tube can be used to maintain a passageway between the skin and renal pelvis to facilitate drainage. Without treatment, pressure would build within the urinary system and cause kidney damage. Blockage can result from tumors, kidney stones and pyonephrosis or the infection of the renal pelvis and collecting system.
