Primary obstructive megaureter


Primary obstructive megaureter is a condition in which the ureter, the tube that carries urine from the renal pelvis to the bladder, is significantly dilated due to a congenital obstruction or anomaly in its structure. This condition can cause problems with urine drainage and may lead to renal complications.


  • Pain or discomfort in the lower back or abdomen.
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections.
  • Blood in the urine.
  • Difficulty emptying the bladder or painful urination.
  • Progressive kidney damage, which can lead to kidney failure if left untreated.


To understand the most appropriate treatment for primary obstructive megaureter, it is advisable to schedule an appointment with Professor Christian Gozzi for a specialized consultation.
