Abstract Introduction: In this study, we aimed to investigate the efficacy and feasibility of stentless laparoscopic pyeloplasty (LP), compared with the stented counterpart. Materials and Methods: We compared the results of stented and stentless LP procedures performed at two centers. The indications included symptoms such as loin pain or urinary tract infection with documented obstruction on renal scintigraphy. Transperitoneal approach was standard for both techniques. The stented and stentless patient groups were compared with regard to surgical duration, length of hospital stay, postoperative symptomatology, complications, and radiologic and scintigraphic findings. Results: Twenty-seven patients with stentless pyeloplasty with at least 6 months of follow-up were included in the study and compared with a matched group of 21 stented LP patients. All had Anderson-Hynes dismembered pyeloplasty. Mean operative time was 151.9 minutes and 144.6 minutes in the stented and stentless groups, respectively (p > 0.05). Mean drain removal time and hospital stay were 1.9 days (range: 1-9 days) and 3.4 days (range: 2-9 days) in the stented group, respectively, and 2 days (range: 1-10 days) and 3.1 days (range: 1-10 days) in the stentless group, respectively (p > 0.05). Renal scintigraphy studies improved in 14 patients in the stented group and in 22 patients in the stentless group during the 6-month follow-up. Symptoms completely resolved in 19 of the stented and in 24 of the stentless cases. Conclusion: Stentless LP is a feasible technique as its stented counterpart. Although it has a relatively high prolonged leakage risk, it could be performed without compromising the success rate by experienced surgeons.
