How is renal biopsy done?
The procedure is done with patient sedated under monitoring. Biopsy is done through a 2 to 3mm skin incision at the back over the loin area. A specialised needle is introduced under ultrasound guidance, directed at the lower end of the kidney where two to three tiny bites of renal tissues were taken. The renal tissues obtained are then prepared and sent for histological studies. The whole procedure usually takes about 20 to 30 minutes and patient usually awakes soon after the procedure.
