    Lower moiety heminephroureterectomy in the duplex refluxing kidney: the accuracy of isotopic scintigraphy in functional assessment.
    Br J Urol 1998 Mar;81(3):356-9
    Department of Paediatric Urology, The Wessex Centre for Paediatric Surgery, Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust, UK.
    Objective: To determine the accuracy of dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) scintigraphy in assessing the differential function between upper and lower moieties of a refluxing duplex system.

    Patients And Methods: Between 1990 and 1996, 20 patients underwent lower moiety heminephroureterectomy. All patients had their differential renal function assessed by DMSA scintigraphy before and after surgery, the results being assessed by comparing the predicted and actual loss of renal function.
