OBJECTIVE To study the effect of hyperhydration with normal saline and frusemide on the renal resistive index (RI) in children with equivocal obstructive uropathy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twelve children (24 kidneys) with unilateral or bilateral hydronephrosis underwent isotopic diuretic renography and Doppler ultrasonography. All children had equivocal obstruction of the hydronephrotic kidneys with half-time drainage (T/2) values of 10-20 min. Doppler studies were carried out both at baseline… CONTINUE READING
