Abstract: In 1947, Hamilton Stewart described a method of dealing with those patients with hydronephrosis in whom lower polar vessels were a factor in the ureteropelvic obstruction. Subsequent reports in the British literature indicated that other surgeons accepted the procedure. The operation has been almost completely disregarded in North America. We present our experience with the Hamilton Stewart nephroplasty because, in selected, cases, it fulfills the ideals of surgery in the relief of obstruction at the ureteropelvic junction associated with lower polar vessels.
