Pyeloplasty: Kidney Pelvis Repair

  • Falconieri_MedicalIllustrationSB__Pyeloplasty_kidney_repair

This piece illustrates pyeloplasty for a lay audience. The kidney pelvis is distended due to a stricture of diseased ureteral tissue immediately distal to the pelvis. During the procedure, the diseased tissue is removed, a stent is placed, and the healthy pelvis and ureter tissue are reconnected. The layout was designed for a single column illustration in a news publication.
