Laparoscopic pyeloplasty for ureteropelvic junction obstruction in crossed fused ectopic pelvic kidney.

Muruganandham K, Kumar A, Kumar S - Korean J Urol (2014)

Bottom Line: Crossed fused renal ectopia is a rare anomaly and may be associated with pelvic ureteric junction obstruction (PUJO).We report such a case with a crossed fused ectopic pelvic kidney (L-type) with PUJO and its successful laparoscopic management.Through this report we emphasize the importance of adequate preoperative imaging and intraoperative details to avoid mishaps.

ABSTRACT
Crossed fused renal ectopia is a rare anomaly and may be associated with pelvic ureteric junction obstruction (PUJO). The L-shaped fusion variety is even rarer. We report such a case with a crossed fused ectopic pelvic kidney (L-type) with PUJO and its successful laparoscopic management. Through this report we emphasize the importance of adequate preoperative imaging and intraoperative details to avoid mishaps.

Figure 5: Pre (A) and post (B, at 3 months) laparoscopic pyeloplasty nuclear scan showing improvement in drainage.

Mentions: The periurethral catheter was removed on the second postoperative day, followed by drain removal and discharge on the third postoperative day. The double J stent was removed after 6 weeks and a renal nuclear scan was done after 3 and 12 months, which revealed decreased hydronephrosis and improved clearance (Fig. 5). At the 18-month follow-up, the patient was asymptomatic and doing well.
