Congenital Puj Obstruction

Congenital Puj Obstruction

Ureteropelvic junction obstruction is a blockage in the area that connects the renal pelvis (part of the kidney) to one of the tubes (ureters) that move urine to the bladder. Ureteropelvic junction obstruction generally occurs when a baby is still growing in the womb. This is called a congenital condition (present from birth).

What is Causes Ureteropelvic Junction Obstruction?
Most of the time, the blockage is caused when the connection between the ureter and the renal pelvis does not develop normally and causes urine to build up, possibly damaging the kidney. The condition can also be caused when a blood vessel is located in the wrong position over the ureter, causing a kink in the ureter. In older children and adults, ureteropelvic junction obstruction can be due to scar tissue, infection, previous treatments for a blockage, or kidney stones. Ureteropelvic junction obstruction is the most frequently diagnosed cause of urinary obstruction in children. It is now commonly diagnosed during prenatal ultrasound studies. In some cases, the condition isn't seen until after birth. Children may have an abdominal mass, urinary tract infection, or pain in the stomach or side.
