Abstract

The kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra are the major components of the renal-urologic system, This system plays a primary role in the regulation of chemical balance within the body by filtering and excreting blood-borne wastes and excess fluid, Each of the system's components can be affiicted by various disorders that may impair the flltration and excretion process and disturb the body's chemical balance (Braunweld et aL 2001).
