CHRISTOFIDES, C; CARIDES, M  y  ADAM, A. "Killing two birds with one stone": endoscopic management of PUJ and VUJ obstructions with a renal stone in a congenital solitary kidney. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2021, vol.59, n.4, pp.197a-197c. ISSN 2078-5151.

We report on the diagnosis and management of a 25-year-old female with a congenital solitary kidney associated with simultaneous pelviureteric (PUJ) and vesicoureteric (VUJ) junction obstructions complicated by a lower pole renal stone. The patient was successfully managed completely endoluminally over two procedures with the use of double-J stents and a laser fibre to incise the VUJ and perform endopyelotomy at the PUJ followed by extraction of the stone. This case demonstrates the efficacy and minimal invasive endoscopic urological surgery even in the face of numerous pathologies, which traditionally required more invasive procedures.

Palabras clave : solitary kidney; pelviureteric junction obstruction; vesicoureteric junction obstruction; renal calculus; endoscopy.
