Abstract

We report our first experience with the use of a small gastric patch for reconstruction of the renal pelvis. We performed left gastropyeloplasty based on the right gastroepiploic artery in 1 patient suffering from recurrent urinary tract infections and renal stones, and moderate renal failure. The use of a gastric patch for reconstruction of the renal pelvis prevented the recurrence of calculi and bacterial infections, and produced an improvement in renal function. We confirm the feasibility of the use of a small gastric patch in reconstruction of the renal pelvis and we argue that there are several possible ways to use stomach in upper urinary tract reconstruction.
