A personal technique for the endourological correction of UPJ stenosis for use in childhood is reported. After the antegrade percutaneous access to the renal pelvis, two surgical steps are foreseen; first, wide resection with a straight cold blade of the pyelic floor detaching the posterolateral wall and reaching the underlying adipose tissue. Then, a longitudinal incision of the ureter supported by a previously inserted double J stent is performed with a hooked cold blade. The percutaneous drainage is removed on the 20th postoperative day, after endoscopic control. The stent is left in place for four weeks. No major side effects occurred.
