An obstruction that occurs in the area where the ureters meet the bladder is called a ureterovesical junction obstruction (UVJ). The ureterovesical junction is located where the ureter (the tube that drains urine from the kidney) meets the bladder. The observed passage rates for stone size in mm-intervals are reported. Ureterovesical junction (UVJ) obstruction results when the flow of urine is restricted around the area where the ureter inserts into the bladder. Ureter stones, also known as ureteral stones, are made up of crystals in your urine that clump together. The ureterovesical junction (UVJ) is the area where the lower end of the ureter meets the urinary bladder.
