Investigation included USG,IVU and radionucleotide study. Eight additional patients had prenatal diagnosis. In 49 patients the disease was left sided, and in 17 patients it was right sided; in 6 the involvement was bilateral. Two patients had hydronephrosis in a solitary left kidney and presented with renal failure. Seventy-one patients had dismembered pyeloplasty. Anastomosis was done with No 5/0 chromic catgut. Stent, nephrostomy and drain were used. One patient had nephrectomy. Two patients presenting with renal failure had preliminary nephrostomy. Postoperative complications included urinoma, prolonged urinary leak, infection, nonfunctioning kidney, and recurrent hydronephrosis. Two patients needed revision procedures. Purpose of this presentation is to highlight excellent result of a simple procedure which can be performed in all centres without the help of any sophisticated instrument.
