  7. 8. Urinary System <ul><li>Kidneys: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Nephrons </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Perform filtration, reabsorption and secretion </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Filtration occurs at the glomerulus, Bowman’s capsule and the basement membrane </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Most renal growth occurs during the first 5 years of life. This increase in size is d/t the enlargement of the nephrons. </li></ul></ul>
  8. 9. FIGURE 31–2 The nephrons are the structural and functional unit of the kidneys. They filter water and wastes across the glomerular capillaries to maintain the body fluid level, electrolyte composition, and pH. A nephron holds six glomeruli, Bowman’s capsule, proximal tubule, loop of Henle, distal tubule, and the collecting duct. Jane W. Ball and Ruth C.

  20. 21. Obstructive Uropathy <ul><li>Structural or functional abnormalities of the urinary system that interferes with urine flow and results in urine backflow into the kidneys. </li></ul><ul><li>The condition can occur anywhere along the urinary tract. </li></ul><ul><li>Pressure caused by urine backup often leads to hydronephrosis </li></ul>
  21. 22. FIGURE 31–6 Obstruction may occur in either the upper or lower urinary tract. Common sites of obstruction occur at the ureteropelvic valve, the ureterovesicular junction, or the posterior urethral valve. Why would damage from posterior urethral valves potentially be worse than other obstructions? Renal failure is most likely to occur when both kidneys are affected by hydronephrosis. Jane W. Ball and Ruth C. Bindler Child Health Nursing: Partnering with Children & Families © 2006 by Pearson Education, Inc. Upper Saddle River, New Jersey 07458 All rights reserved.
  22. 23. Hydronephrosis <ul><li>An accumulation of urine in the renal pelvis as a result of obstructed outflow, and compromises kidney function. </li></ul><ul><li>Most children with hydronephrosis are born with the condition although it can develop during childhood. It is the most common urinary tract anomaly (abnormality) and ranges in severity. In mild hydronephrosis, the pelvic (the part of the kidney that collects the urine) dilation is barely noticeable, whereas in severe hydronephrosis the swelling occupies much of the abdomen. </li></ul>
  23. 24. Hydronephrosis
  24. 25. Pathophysiology of Hydronephrosis <ul><li>When pressure in the kidney pelvis= the filtration pressure in the glomerular capillary, glomerular filtration stops. In response, Blood pressure increases as the body attempts to increase the glomerular filtration pressure, however increasing pressure usually leads to cell death. </li></ul><ul><li>Metabolic acidosis results when the distal nephrons are impaired in their ability to secrete H+ ions. </li></ul><ul><li>Impaired ability to concentrate urine results in polydypsia and polyuria. </li></ul><ul><li>Obstruction results in urinary stasis, promoting bacterial growth </li></ul><ul><li>Chronic renal failure eventually results when hydronephrosis damages the renal parenchyma causing obstructive nephropathy </li></ul>
  25. 26. Hydronephrosis <ul><li>Facts about hydronephrosis </li></ul><ul><li>It is four to five times more common in males than females. </li></ul><ul><li>It can occur in one or both kidneys. </li></ul><ul><li>Most mild cases and even some moderate cases may resolve on their own. </li></ul><ul><li>More severe cases may require surgery. </li></ul>
  26. 27. Hydronephrosis <ul><li>What are the symptoms of hydronephrosis? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In mild cases and even some moderate cases of hydronephrosis, children will have no symptoms and the condition may disappear on its own within the first year of life. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In more severe cases, when kidney function is affected, the infant or child can experience pain, bleeding and infections. These symptoms may not develop until months or years after hydronephrosis is first detected. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tx= surgery to correct blockage </li></ul></ul>
  27. 28. Vesicoureteral Reflux <ul><li>VUR results in backflow of urine from the bladder into the kidneys </li></ul><ul><li>Prevents complete emptying of the bladder and creates a reservoir for bacterial growth </li></ul><ul><li>The defect results from incomplete development of the ureterovesical junction, or from a structural anomaly. </li></ul>

  49. 50. Nephrotic Syndrome
  50. 51. FIGURE 31–7 Note the contrast between the normal glomerular anatomy and the changes that exist in nephrotic syndrome permitting protein to be excreted in the urine. The lower albumin blood level stimulates the liver to generate lipids and excessive clotting factors. Edema results from decreased oncotic plasma pressure, renin-angiotensin-aldosterone activation, and antidiuretic hormone secretion. Jane W. Ball and Ruth C.

  51. 52. FIGURE 31–9 The initial kidney injury is usually associated with an acute condition such as sepsis, trauma, and hypotension, or the result of treatment for an acute condition with a nephrotoxic medication. Injury to the kidney can occur because of glomerular injury, vasoconstriction of capillaries, or tubular injury. All consequences of injury lead to decreased glomerular filtration and oliguria.

APIGN <ul><li>Highest in children ages 2-12 </li></ul><ul><li>More common during winter and spring months </li></ul><ul><li>The child typically has a h/o a recent respiratory infection (w/in 1-2 weeks) or impetigo. </li></ul><ul><li>The child recovers from infection, then develops APIGN after 8-14 days </li></ul><ul><li>Glomerular damage occurs as a result of an immune complex reaction that localizes on the glomerular capillary wall </li></ul>
  68. 69. APIGN <ul><li>Clinical Manifestations: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>% of children are asymptomatic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Abrupt onset of abdominal pain </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Irritability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Microscopic hematuria (most all cases) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Acute HTN </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Nonspecific symptoms </li></ul><ul><ul><li>These can include general malaise, weakness, and anorexia and are present in 50% of patients. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Approximately 15% of patients complain of nausea and vomiting. </li></ul></ul>
  69. 70. APIGN <ul><li>Clinical Manifestations: </li></ul><ul><li>Dark urine (brown-, tea-, or cola-colored) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This is often the first clinical symptom. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dark urine is caused by hemolysis of red blood cells that have penetrated the glomerular basement membrane and have passed into the tubular system. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Periorbital edema and dependent edema </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The onset of puffiness of the face or eyelids is sudden. It is usually prominent upon awakening and, if the patient is active, tends to subside at the end of the day. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In some cases, generalized edema and other features of circulatory congestion, such as dyspnea, may be present. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Edema is a result of a defect in renal excretion of salt and water, and can result in HTN </li></ul></ul>
  70. 71. FIGURE 31–13 Infection from group A beta-hemolytic Streptococcus causes an immune response that causes inflammation and damage to the glomeruli. Protein and red blood cells are allowed to pass through the glomeruli. Blood flow to the glomeruli is reduced due to obstruction with damaged cells and renal insufficiency results, leading to the retention of sodium, water, and waste. Jane W. Ball and Ruth C.

  73. 74. Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome <ul><li>Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is a disease primarily of infancy and early childhood. </li></ul><ul><li>It is characterized by the triad of hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, and acute renal failure. </li></ul><ul><li>Diarrhea and upper respiratory infection are the most common precipitating factors. </li></ul><ul><li>HUS is the most common cause of acute renal failure in children. </li></ul><ul><li>It occurs mostly in infants and children from 6 months to 4 years. </li></ul>
  74. 75. HUS <ul><li>Verotoxin causes damage to the lining of the glomerular arterioles resulting in swelling of the endothelial cells. </li></ul><ul><li>The lining of the glomerular arterioles becomes inflamed, swollen, and occluded w/ particles of platelets and fibrin. </li></ul><ul><li>RBC and PLTs are damaged as they flow through the partially occluded vessels. </li></ul><ul><li>As the damaged cells reach the spleen, they are destroyed and removed from circulation. This leads to hemolytic anemia. </li></ul><ul><li>90% of children w/ this syndrome, have recently experienced E.coli GI infection. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Over ½ cases by contaminated beef </li></ul></ul>
  75. 76. HUS <ul><li>The bacterial infection causes endothelial cell injury in the lining of the small glomerular arterioles. </li></ul><ul><li>This cell damage triggers clotting mechanisms that occlude the arterioles and capillaries. </li></ul><ul><li>This plt aggregation results in thrombocytopenia (b/c plts are damaged by irregular blood cells), and the kidneys become swollen </li></ul><ul><li>Although damage occurs mainly in the endothesial lining of the glomerular arterioles, other organs can be involved (heart, pancreas) </li></ul>
