Ideally Polycystic Kidney should not be disturbed. By puncturing the cyst there is increased chance of infection and hematuria. Laparoscopic puncture of some of the bigger cyst is only advisable in patient in whom the pain is intolerable and the bigger cyst is creating the fibrosis.

For polycystic kidney there are new research available some scientist has noticed that tiny blood vessels surrounding the cysts were altered very early in cyst development. They therefore treated the mice with a potent ‘growth factor’ protein called VEGFC, and found that patterns of blood vessels normalised and the function of the kidneys improved. In the mice with the rare form of the condition, it also led to a modest but significant increase in lifespan.

David Long, lead researcher and Principal Research Associate at the Institute of Child Health at UCL, explains: “With further testing, treatments that target blood vessels surrounding the kidney cysts, perhaps in combination with currently used drugs, may prove to be beneficial for patients with polycystic kidney disease.”
