Is it always necessary to treat a ureteropelvic
The retrospective study was conducted in January 2013 at Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, and comprised records of patients who underwent surgical correction of ureteropelvic
junction obstruction either through LP or OP between January 2008 and December 2012.
A sample of 31 cases having evidence of secondary ureteropelvic
obstruction were listed for the study of which 21 cases as males and the rest females.
We performed a computed tomography (CT) scan of the patient's abdomen, which revealed bilateral hydronephrosis secondary to ureteropelvic
junction obstruction (UPJO).
Subsequently, several refined reconstructive techniques such as the laparoscopic pyeloplasty for obstruction of the ureteropelvic
junction (UPJ) have been developed (JARRETT et al.
Postnatal evaluation of intrauterine hydronephrosis due to ureteropelvic
Pediatric renal disease, including pyelonephritis, ureteropelvic
junction (UPJ) obstruction and rarely nephrolithiasis, is a frequent cause of abdominal pain.
Moderate and severe cases with diameters greater than 15 mm (grades 3 and 4) are often associated with ureteropelvic
junction obstruction, posterior urethral valves, and vesicoureteral reflux (VUR); mild cases (grades 1 and 2) mostly resolve spontaneously (7).
Results of a surgical reconstruction in patients with the renal failure owing to ureteropelvic
junction obstruction: Use of helical CT for preoperative assessment comparison with intraarterial angiography.
The factors contributing to the formation of urinomas include a urine-producing kidney, rupture of the collecting system and an underlying urinary tract obstruction such as a ureteropelvic
junction (UPJ) obstruction or a posterior urethral valve (PUV).

fungus ball or disseminated candidiasis with renal manifestations.
