removal of atrophied kidney

Posted by KESHAV

Is it necessary to remove left nonworking(2%relative function) kidney of my 4 years old son who was operated for left side loop ureterostomy at the age of 6 months due to bilateral hydronephrosis (more on left side).

His right kidney is normal with normal urea creatinine since birth. some drops of urine still comes from the opening created at left side whenever he urinates.

Can the opening be closed and the left ureter be dropped to its previous place without going for removal of left non working kidney.
