Smooth-muscle regeneration after electrosurgical endopyelotomy in a porcine model as confirmed by electron microscopy.


BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Endopyelotomy is the preferred treatment for ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction because of its short operating time, limited morbidity, fast recovery, and reasonable efficacy. We used tissue and immunohistochemistry staining and electron microscopy to look at the muscle regeneration following an endopyelotomy incision in a… (More)
