Overview of Nephrostomy tubes for patients: Nephrostomy tubes are small catheters placed into the kidneys by Interventional Radiologists. They are used to drain urine from the kidney, usually when your kidney is blocked and unable to drain urine on its own. It is important for the kidney to be able to drain urine, so that […]

Brief review of the literature in regards to the indications, outcomes and complications.
Post nephrolithotomy and nephrostomy tube insertion by nephrologist: Persistent drop in Hb and clots in the urine, suspecting bleed. Successful embolization. Repeat angiogram demonstrate residual bleeding, with the host catheter tip moving forward with respiration causing a focal dissection of the main renal artery. No bleeding thru the true lumen. Patient stable.
