2012-10-19 16:15

Polycystic Kidney Disease is a medical condition in which kidney cysts root in the kidneys. Over years, the kidney cysts enlargement will cause various symptoms and complications.

With today's medical technique, gene still can not be changed. However, it does not mean you can not do anything towards PKD. Doctors can control the swelling up of these cysts. Frankly, you can even do more than that, like shrinking these cysts to reduce pressure to renal functional cells.

What Causes Polycystic Kidney Enlargement?

Firstly, we know that kidney cyst stems from blocks in renal tubules, which further develop into independent cyst. Lining cells in cyst wall secretes liquid, and then these cysts become bigger and bigger. These cysts are independent, but these cysts are covered by renal blood capillaries named as efferent arterioles.

If the cyst wall has very good permeability, cyst liquid can filtrate through cyst wall into efferent arterioles and then get out of kidney through blood circulation. This cyst liquid is original urine, and they can be further filtrated out into urine. And in treating PKD, the therapeutic mechanism is promoting blood circulation within kidney and enhancing the permeability of cyst wall. In addition, if these lining cells further secrete liquid, these cysts will further swell up. Another curative effect is to inactive these lining cells to prevent cyst's further swelling up.

Sincerely hope the above context helps providing you with an idea on PKD pathological mechanism and corresponding therapeutic mechanism.
