Fifteen patients with acute unilateral obstruction of ureter and 30 control patients were studied with simultaneous 131I-Hippuran and 99mTc-DTPA gamma camera renography. In severe outflow obstruction the relative function of the obstructed kidney was higher when calculated with Hippuran than with DTPA. No difference was found in the control subjects. This(More)
Renal function and structure were studied in 57 patients on long-term lithium treatment. Nine per cent had a moderate decrease in glomerular filtration rate (GFR), 75% had decreased concentrating ability. No correlation between GFR and the duration of the lithium treatment was found. Twenty-four renal biopsy specimens were studied by light microscopy and(More)
The serum levels of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (25-OHD3) and 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol[1,25-(OH)2D3] were measured simultaneously in nephrectomized patients on maintenance haemodialysis, in haemodialyzed patients with preserved kidneys who were receiving different vitamin D supplement, and in patients who had undergone renal transplantation. The results(More)
Liver impairment has been evaluated in a consecutive series of 79 patients with chronic renal failure of whom 23 were treated with hemodialysis alone and 37 with hemodialysis and renal transplantation alone. In half of the chronic hemodialysis patients and half of the patients receiving a renal allograft elevation of serum alanine aminotransferases was(More)
