Abstract:

Ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) is a widely acknowledged medical condition that causes a blockage in the flow of urine from the renal pelvis to the ureter. If not identified and treated correctly, it can lead to the total loss of the affected kidney. Open pyeloplasty has been widely accepted as the most effective method for repairing Ureteropelvic Junction Obstruction (UPJO) since the first successful reconstruction of an obstructed UPJO was achieved. It consistently achieves success rates of over 90%. Laparoscopic dismembered pyeloplasty is a less invasive option to the traditional open Anderson-Hynes technique, which has a similar rate of success but without the associated complications. Laparoscopic pyeloplasty has resulted in a decrease in the morbidity rate compared to open pyeloplasty, as evidenced by shorter hospital stays and reduced reliance on narcotics. Thus, the combination of versatility and certainty establishes laparoscopic pyeloplasty as the superior method of treatment.
