Purpose: This study aimed to assess the outcome of intravesical ureteric reimplantation for primary obstructed megaureter (POM) performed in infants under 1 year of age.
Materials And Methods: A retrospective cohort study was carried out of all infants undergoing intravesical ureteric reimplantation surgery for POM at two pediatric centers in the 12 years between 2003 and 2014. Outcomes were compared with those of children aged over 1 year undergoing intravesical reimplantation for POM during this period. Read More

Background: Ureteral tapering and reimplantation is an established treatment for persistent or progressive primary obstructive megaureter (POM) but may result in complications and morbidity. Use of a less invasive technique involving endoscopic balloon dilation appears very interesting.
Objective: The objective of this report is to determine if endoscopic balloon dilation for POM is effective in the long term as well as to assess complications of the procedure. Read More

Purpose: An obstructive megaureter identified in the neonatal period can be managed using a number of techniques, with the primary goal being to minimize the potential for further injury to the affected kidney. We describe our experience with refluxing ureteral reimplantation as a novel method for temporizing the obstructive megaureter.
Materials And Methods: Three patients identified prenatally with severe hydroureteronephrosis were confirmed following delivery to have an obstructive ectopic ureter. Read More

Introduction: Primary obstructive ureter (POM) is an upper urinary tract malformation in children. Transvesicoscopic ureteral reimplantation is increasingly being used as the first choice to correct POM, replacing the open extravesical approach. Although several procedures have been reported, there is no universally accepted technique for endoscopic ureteral reimplantation. Read More
