Crossing vessels at the ureteropelvic junction: do they influence endopyelotomy outcome?

Author information

The majority of crossing vessels probably are inconsequential. Bleeding should not be a concern if the incision is made laterally. The optimal way to improve endopyelotomy results is to determine which crossing vessels truly are significant, and the authors describe the clinical trial that might be carried out to answer the question.
