Can Children With Kidney Disease Be Tested For Renal BiopsyStrictly speaking, kidney biopsy has no age limit but it has strict clinical signs. Not all people can do renal biopsy and not all people are fit for it.

What is the function of renal biopsy?

A renal biopsy is the removal of a small piece of kidney tissue for examination which is used to identify kidney pathological type such as Minimal Change Disease (MCD), minimal lesion disease, mild mesangial proliferation, membranous nephropathy, membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS).

What is the advantage and disadvantage of renal biopsy?

Renal biopsy can make your treatment plan more precise. Without biopsy, the above pathological types will all be identified for chronic nephritis.

However, renal biopsy is a traumatic detection. It will do second damage to injured kidneys and even lead to infection so as to worsen kidney disease.

What’s more, high blood pressure, solitary kidney and kidney shrinkage patients can not take renal biopsy.

Is renal biopsy a must for kidney disease patients?

Kidney biopsy can identify the pathological type of kidney disease, which is helpful for kidney disease treatment. But it is not a must process.

In fact, there are many technologies that can replace renal biopsy such as urinary protein component test which can test which epithelial cell is damaged and where is injured as well as the degree of kidney damage.

Glomerular protein filtration index detection can make sure the degree of kidney function damage. Also doctors can know from this test which kidney disease the patients suffer from and how much kidney has been damaged. Doctors can also prescribe medications for patients according to this test.

Moreover, as for damaged kidney tubules, renal tubular epithelial cells in urine test can diagnose the severity of renal tubular damage and with the help of this test doctors can know how to treat damaged renal tubular.

In our hospital, we also have Phospholipase A2 series of complement receptor antibody detection, Neutrophils gelatinases related lipid carrier protein detection and renal toxins index detection, etc. With these modern test technologies, pathological types of kidney disease can be diagnosed exactly without no renal biopsy.
