Evaluation of the Management Results of Uretero-Pelvic Junction Abnormalities


Objectives: To evaluate therapeutic and prognosis of Uretero-pelvic junction abnomalities. Methods: This article was retrospective and descriptive, covering a period of six months, running from January 1st to December 31st, 2013 and conducted to evaluate therapeutic and prognosis of Uretero-pelvic junction abnormalities. Included criteria were all patients whose diagnosis was abnormalities of the uretero-pelvic junction and had been confirmed after para clinical explorations. The stricture of the junction after a first kidney surgery did not include. The Creatinine level has considered high from 15 mg/l. Results: The median age was 35 years old. Age groups (30 - 40) years old have predominated in 36.2%. A male predominance had been noted in 62.3% versus 37.7% women. The most affected occupation was the officials in 37.7% of cases. The main reason for consultation was lumbar pain in 97.1%. The high creatinine level has observed in 19 patients (27.5%). Sixty-one patients (88.41%) have been operated. An abstention has been observed in 7 patients (10.14%) and one patient died before the surgical issue in renal failure. The early post-operative course has been uneventful in 78.7% (48 cases) and complicated in 21.3% (21 cases). Conclusions: Open surgery tends to disappear at the expense of the endopyelotomy and laparoscopy which gives best results. However, it is still relevant.
