Renal caliceal anatomy of a horseshoe kidney

April 29, 2016

A good representative example of the renal caliceal anatomy of a horseshoe kidney

- A 30-year-old female with a horseshoe kidney and multiple stones underwent percutaneous miniaturized nephrolithotomy. We can see the typical renal caliceal anatomy here.

  • UPJ: narrowing (w/ or wo bullous edema), abnormal location

  • hydronephrosis, easier access to the upper pole calyx

  • multiple, very hard stones


















There is another case of horseshoe kidney of Brian Eisner of MGH in Boston. [twitter @BEkidneystone] Do you feel the similarities?
