See How It Works

What is Pyeloplasty ?

Pyeloplasty is a procedure that allows urine to flow freely from the kidney to the lengthy tube that connects the kidney to the bladder (ureter). The ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) blockage is the name for this type of obstruction.

The surgery's purpose is to establish a free flow of urine, which will relieve edema and pressure in the kidney. Pyeloplasty is the most common surgical surgery for the treatment of kidney enlargement caused by urine collecting (hydronephrosis). The procedure clears the obstruction between the ureter and the renal pelvis (UPJ blockage). It reconnects the healthy segment of the ureter to the kidney's drainage system after removing the constricted or obstructed portion.

Types of Pyeloplasty

Open Pyeloplasty: The incision can be made in the lower back, right beneath the 12th rib, across the abdomen, or in the flank region, which is the most usual traditional technique of performing the surgery. In each case, a lengthy cut is done, exposing the kidney by removing the skin, intermediate tissue, and muscles. The ureter is then rejoined to the renal pelvis after the constricted part of the junction is cut and removed. A stent is sometimes put in the narrowed area to maintain the area open and allow for easy urine drainage. Muscles, skin, and other tissues are sewn up after the treatment. The patient is required to stay in the hospital for 3-4 days, with a recovery period of 1-3 months.

Laparoscopic Pyeloplasty: The treatment was initially carried out in 1993 and since then has steadily gained acceptance among patients and surgeons alike. Small cuts and microscopic instruments replace huge incisions in this surgery, which is similar to open pyeloplasty. Despite the fact that the surgery necessitates specialized expertise, it is a more preferred option due to the shorter hospital stay and speedier recovery.

Robotic Pyeloplasty: Many of the obstacles brought by laparoscopy have been overcome because of the da Vinci robotic surgical system. Instruments are delivered into the body through many small incisions and manipulated under video guidance, similar to standard laparoscopic surgery. In robotic surgery, unlike traditional laparoscopy, when the surgeon's hands are directly linked to the tools, the surgeon's actions are controlled from a console located away from the patient and translated by robotic arms. This method allows the wrist to move more freely and reduces tremor, making the surgery easier.

Retrograde Endopyelotomy: The process is the same, except a ureteroscope is used instead of a nephroscope, which is introduced into the bladder and guided up to the renal pelvis. The constricted section is removed, and the stent is inserted between the bladder and the pelvis. This treatment can be done as an outpatient procedure.

Percutaneous Antegrade Endopyelotomy: An incision is created immediately above the top pole of the kidney in this procedure. The nephroscope is inserted up to the renal pelvis and constricted area through the incision. With the help of a camera, micro tools are guided through the scope, and the narrowed portion is cut. The ureter and pelvis are sewn together, and a stent from the pelvis to the bladder is inserted. The stent is usually left in place for 4-6 weeks. The procedure's main benefit is a faster recovery time due to a tiny incision and reduced blood loss.

Acucise Endopyelotomy: A cutting wire and a balloon catheter are utilized in this treatment, which is comparable to retrograde pyeloplasty. The cutting wire is linked to the front of the balloon catheter. A contrast medium is used to fill the balloon. The acucise catheter is directed through the bladder up to the pelvis. The balloon is inflated and the position of the balloon is verified with a fluoroscope. The cutting wire is then used to cut the narrowed area. The catheter is withdrawn and a ureteric stent is inserted.

When is Pyeloplasty required ?

A pyeloplasty may be required in both adults and children. A UPJ blockage affects one out of every 1500 babies. It affects twice as many men as it does women.

If the problem does not improve after 18 months, pyeloplasty will most likely be required.

Adults, teenagers, and older children can develop a UPJ obstruction and may require a pyeloplasty if their kidney is clogged.

How is Pyeloplasty done?


Step 1

A two to three inch cut is made immediately below your baby's rib cage during an open pyeloplasty, and the clogged piece of ureter is removed.

Step 2

The ureter is then reattached to the renal pelvis with a normal caliber ureter.

Step 3

A stent (a little silicone tube) is inserted into their kidney to drain urine. The stent will be removed once they have healed.

Step 1

Older children/adults:

Step 1

The surgeon will make a series of small incisions, each measuring between eight and ten millimeters in length.

Step 2

Your surgeon's assistant robot contains three to four robotic arms. Two to three people are holding instruments, and one is holding a camera. The devices have a similar range of motion to the human hand and can remove the narrow/scarred area of the UPJ blockage while reconnecting the normal tissue.

What is the Recovery after Pyeloplasty like?

After surgery, your healthcare professional will continue to check for this for several months. Follow your healthcare provider's advice for returning to "normal." Short walks should be attempted immediately following surgery. You can move heavy objects and work out after four to six weeks.

What Results Can I Expect from Pyeloplasty?

Pyeloplasty is a rewarding procedure. The effectiveness of a pyeloplasty ranges from 85 percent to 100 percent. When compared to other surgical procedures for UPJ obstruction, it offers the highest success rate.

Frequently Asked Questions

Following pyeloplasty, you or your child may experience some discomfort. After a week, the pain may subside, and you or your child will be prescribed medication to assist alleviate the discomfort.

Studies show that regardless of the beginning degree of relative performance, pyeloplasty did not improve renal function. In some patients whose hydronephrosis was discovered prenatally and who were originally followed with observation, a renal scan revealed that differential function decreased following pyeloplasty.

Open pyeloplasty takes 8 weeks to recover from, whereas laparoscopic pyeloplasty takes 3-4 weeks.

The success rate in terms of total radiographic clearing of the obstruction is around 90%, with symptomatic alleviation being around 95%. Endoscopic methods such as endopyelotomy, on the other hand, have a success rate of 70-80%.

A few weeks following surgery, the stent is removed in the operating room. This is an outpatient operation that can be completed the same day. A drain may be implanted in the area around the kidney and ureter to drain any excess fluid that accumulates during and after surgery. The drain is removed from the bedside once the drainage stops.

In general, the dangers of a pyeloplasty are the same as any other surgery, including infection, redness, swelling, bleeding, and the procedure failing to correct the condition. Urine can, however, flow into other places during kidney operation, causing irritation.
