Report: 

TITLE OF OPERATION:
Cystourethroscopy, left retrograde ureteropyelogram and left dismembered pyeloplasty.

PREOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS:
Left ureteropelvic junction obstruction.

POSTOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS:
Left ureteropelvic junction obstruction.

ANESTHESIA:
General endotracheal anesthesia.

DESCRIPTION:
The patient was brought to the operating room and underwent general
anesthesia. He was placed in the dorsal lithotomy position. He was
prepared and draped in the usual manner. The 9.5 pediatric cystoscope
was placed in the bladder and a #3 ureteral catheter was placed through
the torquing channel. A left retrograde ureteropyelogram was obtained.
This showed a clear obstruction at the junction of the left
ureteropelvic junction. The cystoscope and stent were then removed.

The
patient was then placed in the left-flank-up position. An incision was
made off the tip of the 12th rib with a #15 blade. Bleeding was
controlled utilizing electrocautery. The muscle fibers were all incised
in the flank with electrocautery. Two Richardson retractors were placed.
Gerota’s fascia was opened in a vertical fashion and the kidney was
delivered. The ureter was found in the retroperitoneal space and
dissected out to the level of the renal pelvis. There was clear
obstruction and kinking at the level of the ureteropelvic junction.
Markings sutures were placed in the ureter and the renal pelvis with 6-0
Vicryl. The obstructive segment was excised and the tenth renal pelvis
was then decompressed. An oblique anastomosis was then effected between
the upper ureter which had been spatulated and the renal pelvis. This
was accomplished with two sutures of 6-0 Vicryl at the apices and then
running sutures on the anterior and posterior wall with 6-0 Vicryl.
Prior to completing the anterior anastomosis, a 10-French Malecot
catheter was used as a nephrostomy tube and brought with the nephrostomy
needle through the substance of the kidney and was brought out through
the flank, and it was sewn to the flank with 4-0 Prolene. The anterior
aspect of the anastomosis was then completed after a #3 pediatric
feeding tube was placed through the anastomosis and� to be watertight.
The kidney was returned to the renal space. Gerota’s fascia was left
open in the caudad portion. A Penrose drain was placed through a stab
wound and brought down to the inferior portion below the anastomosis.
This was sewn to the skin with 4-0 nylon. The muscle layers were then
closed with running 3-0 Vicryl. The subcutaneous layer was closed with
4-0 Vicryl and the skin was closed with a running subcuticular 3-0
Prolene suture. There were no intraoperative complication. The patient
was discharged to the recovery room in satisfactory condition.
