INTRODUCTION The treatment of ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) and concomitant calculus poses a technically challenging situation. We present our experience with using rigid nephroscopy for renal calculi removal during robot-assisted pyeloplasy (RAP) for UPJO. TECHNICAL CONSIDERATIONS From December 2010 to November 2012, 25 patients with UPJO had RAP at our institution; 9 of those had concurrent renal calculi, which were simultaneously treated with rigid nephroscopy.
