Minimal invasive treatment of benign anastomotic uretero-ileal stricture in Hautmann neobladder with thermoexpandable ureteral metal stent.

Indian J Urol 2015 Apr-Jun;31(2):139-41

Department of Urology, General Hospital of Sparta, Greece.

Technical challenges and increased morbidity of open reconstruction for uretero-ileal strictures have led to a search for minimal invasive treatments as an alternative solution. The insertion of a thermo-expandable ureteral Memokath 051(®) metal stent across benign uretero-ileal anastomotic stricture in orthotopic neobladder has not been described in the English literature. Herein, we describe a case of a woman with a Hautmann neobladder and a 3.5 cm benign stricture of the right uretero-ileal anastomosis that was treated with insertion of a thermo-expandable ureteral Memokath 051(®) metal stent.
