What is a Nephrostomy?
A nephrostomy is an artificial opening created between the kidney and the skin which allows for the urinary diversion directly from the upper part of the urinary system.
This procedure would be performed when a blockage keeps urine from passing from the kidneys, through the ureter, into the bladder. Without this alternative way for the urine to drain, the pressure would rise within the urinary system and the kidneys would be damaged.
Nephrostomies are created by surgeons or interventional radiologists and typically consist of a catheter which pierces the skin and rests in the urinary tract. Urine is then collected in an external drainage bag which can be emptied as often as necessary.
