Renal blood flow measurements using radioactive microspheres in a porcine model with unilateral vesicoureteral reflux.


Renal blood flow was studied in Yorkshire pigs with surgically created unilateral vesicoureteral reflux using radionuclide labeled microspheres. The contralateral, nonrefluxing kidney served as a within-subject control and a group of nonoperated pigs without reflux served as an additional control group. Unilateral reflux did not change the distribution of… (More)
