retro- behind; back; backward
Bowman capsule tiny structure surrounding each glomerulus; receives filtered materials from blood
calices cup-like divisions of the renal pelvis that receive urine from the renal tubules
cortex outer region of the kidney
glomerulus collection of capillaries through which materials from the blood are filtered into the Bowman capsule
medulla inner (middle) region of the kidney
renal pelvis central urine-collecting basin in the kidney that narrows into the ureter

meatal stenosis narrowing of the meatus (opening of the urethra to the outside of the body).
meatotomy incision of the meatus
paranephric pertaining to near the kidney
nephropathy disease of the kidney
nephroptosis prolapse (drooping/sagging) of kidney

ureterolithotomy incision of a ureter to remove a stone
ureteroileostomy new opening between a ureter and the ileum (for removal of urine after cystectomy).
urethritis inflammation of the urethra
urethroplasty surgical repair of the urethra
urethral stricture narrowing of the urethra
perivesical pertaining to surrounding the bladder
vesicureteral reflux backflow of urine from the bladder into the ureters

nocturia excessive urination at night
oliguria scanty urination
erythropoietin hormone secreted by the kidney to increase red blood cell formation in the bone marrow
pyuria pus in the urine
lithotripsy process of crushing a stone in the urinary tract.
uremia urea (urine) in the blood; a potentially fatal condition

diuresis condition of complete (excessive) urination.
antidiuretic hormone secreted by the pituitary gland and helps to reabsorb water from the renal tubules back into the bloodstream (ADH)
urinary incontinence inability to hold urine in the bladder
urinary retention inability to release urine from the bladder
dysuria difficult, painful urination
anuria no urine is produced

renal failure failure of the kidney to excrete wastes and maintain its filtration function
renal hypertension high blood pressure resulting from kidney disease
bladder cancer malignant tumor of the urinary bladder
diabetes insipidus inadequate secretion or resistance of the kidney to the action of antidiuretic hormone (ADH); 'tasteless'
diabetes mellitus inadequate secretion or improper utilization of insulin; 'sweet'
blood urea nitrogen (BUN) lab test to measure urea (nitrogenous waste) levels in the blood
magnetic resonance imaging magnetic field and radio waves produce images of the kidney and surrounding structures in all three planes of the body
