Ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJ)

Is the most common congenital abnormality of the ureter and is seen more often in men than in women (5:2ratio). It can be presented with flank pain, hematuria or recurrent urinary infections. The diagnosis is most often made by ultrasound. Symptomatic UPJ obstruction can be treated surgically, either endoscopically with cold knife incision or robotically performing pyeloplasty.
