PMID:  20005018     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Hydronephrotic kidney with a differential renal function greater than 55% is defined as supranormal. The signification of this finding remains controversial. In this article, the authors reported a case of supranormal function in obstructive hydronephrosis. Differential renal functions were evaluated after administration of captopril and after pyeloplasty. The role of captopril renography as a prognostic factor for surgery is discussed.
