Abstract

Urinary complications following renal transplantation are rather uncommon, but can cause severe problems such as deterioration in renal function, prolonged postoperative morbidity, and loss of the transplanted kidney. Ultrasound and scintigraphy are non-invasive methods used to detect urinary extravasation. Reconstructed CT ureteropyelography has also been employed for the detection of urinary extravasation after renal transplantation. MRI imaging can show the renal function of the transplanted kidney and the extravasation. MRI is an effective non-invasive alternative for the diagnosis of urinary extravasation after renal transplantation especially when ultrasound and scintigraphy are inconclusive.
