Özet

Background/Purpose: Ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction causes histologic alterations both in ipsilateral and contralateral kidney. Because these alterations directly affect the fate of renal damage, definition of these alterations is of utmost importance from the clinical point of view. Thus, an experimental study is designed to determine the alterations of renal histology in response to partial and complete UPJ obstruction.
