Abstract Ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction describes various causes of impaired drainage at the UPJ. Regardless of the cause, the end result is the same: impedance in the normal flow of urine from the renal pelvis into the proximal ureter, resulting in caliectasis and hydronephrosis. This may lead to progressive deterioration of renal function and, thus, often requires intervention to relieve the obstruction and restore the normal flow of urine. Defining the pertinent anatomy, the degree of obstruction, and differential renal function is key to determining whether and when intervention is necessary.
