PKD With Enlarged Kidney Size 16 cm and 19 cm

PKD With Enlarged Kidney Size 16 cm and 19 cmAs its name indicates, Polycystic Kidney Disease can cause numerous fluid-filled cysts to develop in mostly two kidneys. With the growth of these cysts, they will expand kidney structure abnormally. Kidney size 16 cm and 19 cm are much larger than the normal size. What should patients do?

The healthy kidneys

Kidneys are comprised of blood capillaries. Normally, blood vessels can provide enough blood and oxygen for inherent kidney cells. At the same time, kidneys can filter 90~125 ml/min/1.73m2 of blood. For healthy adults, their kidneys are 3-4 cm in thickness, 5-6 cm in width and 10-12 cm in length. The correct link between kidneys and blood circulation can guarantee the stable internal environment.

We have mentioned above that PKD is characterized by kidney cysts. As time goes on, PKD kidney cysts become bigger and bigger, and kidney size expands gradually. 16cm and 19cm are both quite larger than the length of kidneys.
