|Dear Ravi Kumar
The obstruction of PUJ needs to be removed so that urine can pass freely from the kidney down to the bladder.
This surgery can be accomplished by several means:
1, By cutting out the PUJ obstruction and joining the kidney onto the ureter called pyeloplasty.
Pyeloplasty i.e. cutting out the obstruction has the best results and lasts for the longest period. This can be achieved through a traditional surgery either by open pyeloplasty or by keyhole surgery laparoscopic pyeloplasty.
Making a cut in the PUJ obstruction so that it splits open and becomes wider that way called as endopyelotomy which is less effective than cutting it out altogether, but is possibly better than bursting it with a balloon. In some situations, it is dangerous because of neighbouring blood vessels.
Bursting the obstruction with a balloon. Bursting the obstruction with a balloon is quick, the least invasive but is less effective and lasts for the shortest period. Furthermore, it produces scarring that can make corrective surgery more difficult. For some patients it is the best option because poor health makes other treatment dangerous.
So in our opinion you should consult some good urologist for further investigation and evaluation so to decide which surgery will be better for you.
