Management of ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO)

  • In UPJO, a conservative approach seems reasonable in the large majority of cases, even in those with severe hydronephrosis on ultrasounds.
  • A rapid renographic control should be planned in the event of a significant increase of the pelvic diameter on RUS.
  • Early surgical intervention is recommended in the cases of deteriorating split renal function +/- delayed cortical transit.
