Figure 1: Stenting Antegrade Via Veress needle during laparoscopic pyeloplastY (“SAVVY” technique). (a) Stillete of the Veress needle is removed and free passage of stent with guide wire through the needle is checked. (b) After completing posterior layer of pyeloplasty, Veress needle is inserted transabdominally and the tip negotiated to direct the stent toward the ureteric anastomosis. (c) Double-J stent is inserted over guide wire through the Veress needle and stent pusher is used to advance the stent into ureter. (d) After confirming stent position, the proximal coil is placed in the pelvis. Anterior layer of pyeloplasty is completed after this step
