Ischemic, which comes from the Greek word ischemia, means restriction of blood supply. Nephropathy is damage to the kidneys. Thus, ischemic nephropathy is dysfunction of the kidneys due to compromised blood flow in the arteries.

What is ischemic nephropathy?
Johns Hopkins Medicine answered
What causes urethritis?
Urethritis, or inflammation of the urethra, has a few causes. The most common cause is a sexually transmitted infection. The infections that most commonly cause urethritis are gonorrhea, chlamydia, and herpes virus. Other causes of inflammation include contraceptive jelly, cream, or foam; spermicide used in condoms; and chemical irritation from soaps or lotions.

What is urethral hypermobility?
Jill Rabin, Obstetrics & Gynecology, answered
Urethral hypermobility refers to too much movement of the urethra, causing it to drop below the pelvic floor muscles during certain activities. This may or may not cause urine leakage.
When the support provided by the pelvic muscles is relaxed or lost, the bladder neck and urethra may shift, sag, or drop into a lower position during periods of activity, thus causing pressure on the bladder neck area. The pressure on the bladder will exceed the pressure on/in the urethra. If the bladder neck or urethra opens briefly, leakage occurs.
