Parapelvic Kidney Cysts: Hypertension and Treatments
Parapelvic kidney cyst, also know as peripelvic cyst, which is originated from outside the renal sinus and invades into the renal sinus. Most parapelvic cysts are caused by congenital factors and its incidence rate is 1% to 3% of the renal cysts and most cases have the first attack of the parapelvic cysts in after 50 years old. Usually the parapelvic cyst is single and the substances in the cysts are renal parenchyma or urine.

The parapelvic cyst is benign and when the cyst is smaller than 5cm, it does not cause symptoms or discomforts to the patients and no special treatments are needed. However the cysts will continue to enlarge and cause many signs and complications. The enlarged parapelvic cysts will obstruct the ureter and cause hydronephrosis and obvious lump in the abdomen. Other common symptoms(symptoms of parapelvic kidney cysts) include pains in the flank, back and belly; blood in urine; hypertension and frequent infections. When complicated with infections, the patient will suffer from shivering, high fever and knocking pains in the renal area. In such conditions, proper treatment should be sought as soon as possible.What Is the Relevance of Parapelvic Cyst with Large Hematuria
Why patients will have hypertension
As one common symptoms of parapelvic kidney cyst, hypertension is a bother for most patients. The long time compression of the parapelvic cyst to the renal cells and tissues will cause hypoxia and ischemia in the kidneys and as a result the kidneys will secrete more rennin which will activate the angiotensin I and cause the contract of the small artery in the whole body, thus the hypertension. The rennin and the angiotensin I will in turn promote the secretion of the aldosterone which will cause the retention of water and sodium and aggravate high blood pressure.Should I Worry About My 1.8 cm Renal Parapelvic Cyst

Hypertension caused by parapelvic cyst has much to do with the renal functions and the less the kidney functions are, the worse the hypertension. More than 80% of end-stage renal failure patients will have hypertension. Renal hypertension has great damages to the kidneys and other organs, so positive and timely treatments and nursing cares should be received as soon as possible. The first step is to bring the blood pressure under control because the hypertension will in turn stimulate the cysts and make the cyst easy to relapse and cause further damages to the kidneys. At the same time, other therapies that can shrink the cysts and protect the kidneys should be used. One thing that the patients need to pay more attention whiling taking anti-hypertension drugs is that the medicines that have no effect on the renal blood flow and free of renal toxicity should be preferred and try to avoid those that can increase the kidney’ burdens.
However long term intake of anti-hypertension drugs will have some side effects to the body and in some cases, the patients will become drug-resistant. In such conditions, I recommend the Chinese medicines(Chinese Herbs for Complex Kidney Cysts) which emphasis the regulation and repairing. It can not only greatly improve the states of ischemia and hypoxia in the kidneys, but also can shrink the parapelvic cysts and repair kidney damages.How to Shrink the Cyst With Polycystic Kidney Disease(PKD)
