Medical Program for Laparoscopic Pyeloplasty Surgery.
The treatment of pyeloureteral junction syndrome has evolved considerably through the laparoscopic route that has experienced a boom in this indication.
The stenosis of the pyeloureteral junction is a normally congenital pathology that consists of a stricture or narrowing of the ureter (a tube that goes from the kidney to the bladder) that prevents a correct emptying of the urine.
Laparoscopic pyeloplasty presents high rates of effectiveness and offers the advantages of a better postoperative and shorter hospital stays
The obstruction of the ureteropelvic junction in the adult is usually asymptomatic, secondary and evolutive. To preserve the function of the affected kidney, it is often necessary to perform a surgical correction. Laparoscopic pyeloplasty has been shown to be effective for the surgical treatment of obstruction of the ureteropelvic junction in adults, and offers high rates of long-term success. Laparoscopic pyeloplasty reproduces the technique of open surgery, and has evolved in order to equalize the success, morbidity and complications rates of open surgical pyeloplasty. However, it has been shown that convalescence after laparoscopy is shorter than in the case of open surgery.
Laparoscopic pyeloplasty is a safe and effective procedure for managing the narrowness of the pyeloureteral junction and has a low frequency of complications.
