Abstract

In this study, resistive index (RI) value that reflects pathologic and physiologic changes in kidneys was investigated after experimental bilateral proximal ureteral obstruction in dogs by Color Doppler Ultrasonography (CDUS). Six mongrel dogs (3 females and 3 males) were used. Bilateral proximal ureteral obstruction was formed interventionally by laparatomy. Peritoneal dialysis was performed for the clearence of metabolites increased in the blood. Kidneys were examined by CDUS and Gray Scala Ultrasonography (GSU) before and after laparatomy, during the peritoneal dialysis, and the 5th , 10th , and 15th days after removal of the clips from the ureters. RDUS revealed that RI values were not increased during the peritoneal dialysis. In conclusion, combination of GSU and CDUS is helpful in evaluation of renal diseases, and increased RI value in obstructive renal diseases can be obviated by peritoneal dialysis.
