Functional assessment of crossing vessels as etiology of ureteropelvic
Junction is located where the pelvis of the kidney meets the ureter (the tube that drains urine into the bladder).
Minimally invasive treatment of ureteropelvic
junction obstruction: A critical analysis of results.
The determined stones distributed in the ureterovesical junction (UVJ), renal pelvis, ureteropelvic
junction (UPJ), upper ureter, lower ureter and midureter in 36.5%, 23%, 16.7%, 11.9%, 7.1% and 4.8% respectively (Table-III).
junction obstruction due to crossing vessels was demonstrated in 2 patients.
The IPA of the lower calyces was measured as the inner angle formed at the intersection of the ureteropelvic
and central axes of the lower-pole infundibulum, as defined by Elbahnasy et al . The IL of the access calyx was measured as the distance between the distal point of the calyx and the pelvic-infundibular junction.
In children, urinoma may be the consequence of congenital anomalies, like posterior urethral valves or ureteropelvic
junction obstruction .
This study reports a case of an FEP that originated in the ureteropelvic
junction (UPJ) and extended along the ureter.
In 14% to 21% of affected neonates, ANH is associated with ureteropelvic
junction obstruction or vesicoureteral reflux anomalies.
One patient observed was incidentally found to have an ureteropelvic
junction (UPJ) obstruction.

junction injuries," BMC Urology, vol.
Abdominal computerized tomography (CT) revealed significant hydronephrosis consistent with a right ureteropelvic
junction (UPJ) obstruction, for which she underwent ureteral stent placement on hospital day 2.
