Webinbar: Transabdominal laparoscopic pyeloplasty in children
Tuesday 11 April 2023, 18:00 - 19:00

Organised by ESPU Educational Committee / EAU Working Group on Pediatric urology

Duration: 60 min


  • Moderator: Dr. Marcel Drlík (Prague, Czech Republic),
  • Speakers: Dr. Radim Kočvara (Prague, Czech Republic) and Dr. Selcuk Silay (Istanbul, Turkey)

Summary: The gold standard treatment for ureteropelvic junction obstruction is dismembered pyeloplasty. With some delay compared to adult urology, minimally invasive surgery methods have gained popularity in the last two decades in pediatric urology as well. In this webinar, we will focus in detail on the technical aspects of laparoscopic transperitoneal pyeloplasty. We will discuss the different options for accessing the kidney, technical options for less standard and common cases (flap pyeloplasty, vascular hitch) and drainage options. New possibilities brought by robotic surgery will also be discussed. The last 15 minutes of the webinar are reserved for answering questions from the webinar participants.
