ABSTRACT: Pyeloplasty for hydronephrosis due to pelvi ureteric junction obstruction (BUJ) is now a routine surgical procedure in the newborn period. To stent or not to stent the anastomosis has its votaries for and against it. For the stent group, another dilemma arises about the placement of a nephrostomy tube. We at the Pediatric Surgery Department ICH & HC Egmore, Chennai, have confronted the problem by making a simple modification in an infant feeding tube by which this tube acts as a stent cum nephrostomy tube.
