OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the usefulness of a small size nasogastric tube as a combined nephrostomy tube and stent in Anderson-Hyne Pyeloplasty. METHOD: Size 6 FG nasogastric tube with two holes made at the midportion, was used in each of 10 consecutive patients who had Anderson-Hypes dismembered pyeloplasty. The distal portion served as stent while the middle perforated portion was situated in the renal pelvis. Through a separate stab wound at the lateral abdominal wall the rest of the tube was brought out. The single tube then served as both a nephrostomy and a splint to the repair. RESULT: In 9 (90%) out of 10 patients, the tube drained significant urine post operatively. When removed six to twelve days later there was no urinary fistula in any of the patients.
