After several misdiagnoses that caused a 27-year-old to lose her kidney, Latifa Hospital doctors succeeded in salvaging a patient’s remaining kidney by performing a minimally invasive surgery to rectify her ureter after it has expanded three times its original size.

The patient was diagnosed with bilateral Hydronephrosis and hydroureter which is the swelling of the kidneys when urine flow is obstructed in any of part of the urinary tract.

Dr Nasir said the condition can be caused by various congenital deformities of the ureter, kidney stones, endometriosis (in young patients) to name a few.
