Abstract

The first pyeloplasty was performed in 1891, and several techniques have been developed in the ensuing century. Today, some surgeons are performing laparoscopic dismembered pyeloplasty on the Anderson-Hynes model, but the details of the technique are still in evolution. Continued improvements in instrumentation and innovative suturing techniques may help make the laparoscopic approach the standard method for pyeloplasty.
