Extended pyelolithotomy for staghorn calculus in a uremic patient with solitary functioning kidney was followed by development of stenosis of the infundibulum draining the superior and middle calyces. Drainage of the lower calyx down the ureter remained intact. Intubated infundibuloplasty proved unsuccessful since scarring and occlusion promptly recurred. Anastomosis of the middle calyx to the ureter was then performed with good results. We believe this is the first reported case of ureterocalycostomy for providing drainage to the middle calyx without lower polar nephrectomy.
