Audit of Nephrostomy (for Patients with Hyperkalaemia)

Audit of Nephrostomy (for Patients with Hyperkalaemia)

Percutaneous nephrostomy (PCN) under local anaesthesia or retrograde ureteric stenting under general anaesthesia are effective treatments to relieve renal impairment due to ureteric obstruction.  Pre-procedural hyperkalaemia is often a cause of concern for anaesthetic and radiological staff due to the associated risk of dysrhythmia and sudden death.

The outcomes of patients who underwent nephrostomy for hyperkalaemia with renal failure secondary to ureteric obstruction were audited over a 5 year period.
