Use of 3-dimensional printing technology and silicone modeling in surgical simulation: Development and face validation in pediatric laparoscopic pyeloplasty
He said the medical staff conducted 50 high-risk and complex and minor operations including CABG, mastectomy, laparoscopic pyeloplasty
and cystostomy in addition to 94 cases for coronary angiography which were all successful.

Indications for referral to a paediatric urologist for possible pyeloplasty
Pyelolithotomy is also appropriate in patients who are undergoing major open abdominal or retroperitoneal surgical procedures for other conditions; the most common concomitant procedure is open pyeloplasty
for ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction.
Among the topics are lessons learned in the transition from laparoscopic to robotic surgery, physiological changes during minimally invasive surgery, reconstructive surgery in duplex kidney, alternative techniques of pyeloplasty
in the adult population, and family perceptions and impact of new technology on decision making.
The second section details surgical techniques such as robot-assisted laparoscopic pyeloplasty
, nephrectomy, heminephrectomy, and bladder augmentation.
Urologists are among the specialists who have reported a significant increase in the use of LESS in the past several years; successes for partial nephrectomy, pyeloplasty
, renal biopsy, and numerous other procedures have been described.
Materials and Methods: Since the inception of urologic laparoscopy in the mid-1990s, 25 ureterolithotomy, four pyelolithotomy, seven pyeloplasty
with renal pelvic stone removal, and two laparoscopic nephrolithotomies for calyceal diverticular stones have been performed at our institution.
On the other hand, laparoscopic pyeloplasty
has been reported to be 86% to 100% successful in cases with a crossing vessel and seldom leads to vascular injury.
Agatstein and Paletz, an open pyeloplasty
A 38-year-old woman was referred to our institution for definitive management following a failed right laparoscopic pyeloplasty
for ureteropelvic junction obstruction.
