We present a new ureterocalicostomy technique in a patient with intrarenal pelvis together with renal artery compression on the pelvis and ureteropelvic junction (UPJ). The patient had grade 4 hydronephrosis in the left kidney and angulation at the ureteropelvic junction. We performed side- to-side ureterocalicostomy between the ureter and lower calyx of the kidney.
