UPJ Obstruction

Ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction occurs when there is a blockage between the kidney and the ureter (one of the tubes that carry urine to the bladder). It is most often a congenital defect one is born with, but can occur in children or adults due to kidney stones, scar tissue, previous surgery or infection.

UPJ can be corrected with surgery to open the blockage.
