Renal Biopsy

In a renal or kidney biopsy, a small piece of kidney is removed to examine under a microscope to study the damage or disease of the organ. It helps in determining the severity of the kidney disease and to chalk out a plan for treating it. Our team of experts inserts a thin needle in the skin and reaches the kidney by viewing it in an imaging device and remove the tissue. This process is known as percutaneous kidney biopsy. The procedure is very safe to perform and the pain at the biopsy site lasts only for a few hours. The renal biopsy can be done in the following cases:

  • Hematuria i.e. blood in the urine
  • Proteinuria i.e. protein in the urine
  • Problem with kidney function

Dialysis

Blue Bliss Hospital performs dialysis for kidney failure in Bangalore. In this procedure, the excess water, solutes, and toxins are removed from the blood of people whose kidneys have stopped working. The two types of dialysis procedures performed in our hospital are hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. In hemodialysis, the waste and water are removed from the body by circulating the blood outside the body using an external filter called a dialyzer. The dialyzer works as an artificial kidney. In peritoneal dialysis, the waste and water are removed from the blood using the peritoneum.

CRRT

CRRT is Continous Renal Replacement Therapy. It is a specialized dialysis treatment that is provided as a continuous 24 hours therapy. Our team monitors the patient throughout the procedure. The CRRT differs from the normal dialysis in terms of the speed at which the waste product is removed from the body. It removes water and wastes at a slow pace. CRRT is performed when the patient suffers from the following diseases:

  • Hepatic failure after surgery
  • Severe acute pancreatitis
  • Fulminant hepatitis
  • Lowered kidney function

Plasma Therapy

Blue Bliss is the leading kidney care hospital in Bangalore and provides world-class treatment in kidney diseases. The plasma therapy also known as plasmapheresis filters the blood and remove the harmful antibodies from the plasma. Due to this, the patient with kidney failure can receive a kidney from a donor of any blood group. Antibodies act as the natural defense system of the body and destroy foreign bodies. As the antibodies are removed, they are unable to attack and damage the donated kidney. The removed plasma is replaced with frozen plasma, saline, or albumin. Some conditions that require this procedure are:

  • Cryoglobulinemia
  • Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura
  • Recurrent FSGS in Renal Transplant
  • Anti-GBM disease
