OBJECTIVE To investigate dynamic changes in the obstructed rat ureter and to evaluate the usefulness of the rat model in the study of obstructive uropathy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Unilateral ligation of the ureter was performed in 26 rats. After ureteric ligation, four to seven rats were killed and examined after 1, 3, 7, 10, and 14 days. The severity of hydroureter and hydronephrosis was assessed by pyelography and the hydroureter-hydronephrosis index. The middle portion of the ureter was… CONTINUE READING
