Mandela School of Medicine, Greys Hospital, Pietermaritzburg, South AfricaCited by: 1. The gold standard for the emergency diagnosis of renal colic in the emergency department is IV pyelography (IVP).2, 3, 4Unfortunately, IVPs are costly, require an IV line, and expose the patient to small but real risks of anaphylaxis and renal by: 1. Br J Clin Pract. Oct;21(10) Emergency intravenous pyelography in renal colic. Main JM. PMID: [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]Cited by: 1. CONCLUSION: Emergency IVPs are useful in the evaluation of patients with suspected renal colic, primarily when they rule out ureteral obstruction and allow consideration of alternative diagnoses. Not uncommonly, emergency urologic consultation or hospitalization occurs on the basis of IVP by:
In the remaining patients, no difference between treatments was results suggest that in acute renal colic the use of dipyrone 2 g is unjustified as dipyrone 1 g is equally effective. Introduction Non-contrast helical CT (NHCT) became the procedure of choice for investigating Emergency Department (ED) patients presenting with suspected renal colic at Beaumont Hospital, Dublin, in The impact of NHCT on waiting times and patient management was compared with intravenous pyelography (IVP).

Acute renal colic is probably the most painful event a person can endure and are frequently encountered in the emergency department. Patients often undergo multiple investigations before a. Objectives: To assess the current practice of emergency management of renal colic in a district hospital, review literature, implement new guidelines, and assess them. Methods: Data were collected about the use of analgesia, waiting time for intravenous urography (IVU), and admission status of patients presenting to the hospital with symptoms of renal colic over the period of three months.
