A rabbit model with megaureters with partial or complete obstruction was produced. Radioisotope studies with the use of imaging and renogram techniques and furosemide diuresis could diagnose the existence of obstruction and qualify it as partial or complete. This model can be used for more detailed studies to investigate obstructive uropathy with diuresis renography.
