Pyeoloureteral junction (PUJ) stenosis


Pyeoloureteral junction (PUJ) stenosis is a condition in which the ureter, the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder, is partially or completely narrowed at the point where it connects to the kidney. This condition can cause problems with urine drainage and, if left untreated, can lead to kidney damage. In this article, we will explore the causes of pyeoloureteral junction stenosis, associated symptoms, diagnostic options, and possible treatment options.


  • Pain in the lower back or flank.
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections.
  • Blood in the urine.
  • Elevated blood pressure.
  • Swelling or fluid accumulation in the legs or abdomen.


To understand the most appropriate treatment for pyeoloureteral junction stenosis, it is advisable to schedule an appointment with Professor Christian Gozzi for a specialized consultation.
