Pyeloplasty is a procedure to work on the kidney pelvis where the urine is gathered after it is created. At the intersection of the kidney pelvis and the ureter, there can regularly be a blockage. This is known as a pelviureteric intersection blockage and should be managed to avoid long-term problems like kidney failure, urinary infection and the development of kidney stones.

Laparoscopic Pyeloplasty

Laparoscopic pyeloplasty utilizes fibre-optic instruments to work on the blockage. Ordinarily known as ‘keyhole surgery’, a laparoscopy is a far less obtrusive system that decreases a significant number of the dangers related to open surgery. Using fibre-optic innovation just little entry points are made amid the technique and in this manner, it is a generally safe and negligibly intrusive operation.

Process

Laparoscopic pyeloplasty is performed while the patient is under a general anaesthesia. Three little cuts are made in the guts. A laparoscope and little surgical instruments are embedded into the entry points where the urologist would then be able to work on the blockage.

After the blockage has been expelled and the ureter recreated, a little plastic tube called a ureteral stent is put inside the ureter to connect the repair and help empty the pee out of the kidney. This will normally stay for a month and a half and can be evacuated by your specialist.

Laparoscopic surgery offers the huge advantage of quick recovery over open surgery. Considerably less recovery time is expected to return to work and start normal activities.
