Urodynamics of the Multicalyceal Upper Urinary Tract
The upper urinary tract consists of the calyces, renal pelvis and ureters, all of which are involved in the active transport of urine away from the kidney towards the bladder. Clearly, before the mechanism of urine transport in this system can be understood, the contribution made by each of the component parts must be defined.
