    [Laparoscopic management of ureteroileal stenosis: Long term follow up.]

    Arch Esp Urol 2017 May;70(4):487-491
    Departamento de Urología. Fundació Puigvert. Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona. Barcelona. España.
    Objective: To describe the laparoscopic approach for uretero-ileal anastomosis strictures and to analyse our long term series.

    Methods: A retrospective review was performed evaluating our series of patients with benign ureteroileal anastomosis strictures treated laparoscopically from 2011 to 2017. Demographics and perioperative data were obtained and analyzed. Complications were described with the Clavien-Dindo classification. The surgical technique was described and a literature review was performed.

    Results: Eleven procedures were performed in ten patients. Mean blood loss was 180 ml. All the operations were performed laparoscopically without conversion. Mean hospital stay was 10 days (4-23). Early complications were Clavien-Dindo I y II: Two cases of limited anastomosis leakage, one lymphorrea, one paralitic ileum and one accidental descent of the ureteral catheter. Mean follow-up was 56 months (12-179) No late complications have been described.

    Conclusion: Based on our series with 5 year follow up, the laparoscopic approach for uretero-ileal anastomosis strictures is feasible and safe.

    Background: A ureteroileal anastomosis stricture (UAS) is one of the most frequent complications after radical cystectomy. Open surgical repair is the treatment of choice but is associated with morbidity.

    Objective: To describe the efficacy and safety of laparoscopic management for benign secondary UAS. Read More

    Introduction: The first laparoscopic case of ileal interposition was reported in 2000, proving the feasibility of the procedure in a minimally invasive fashion by duplicating the principles of open surgery. Robotic applications in urology are expanding worldwide, given the unique features of the robotic platform, which facilitates more advanced laparoscopic procedures. In this study, we report a case of completely intracorporeal robotic ileal ureter and thoroughly describe our technique for this complex minimally invasive procedure. Read More

    Objectives: Although the ileal conduit is the most well-established urinary diversion, the optimal technique for ureteroileal anastomosis remains controversial. Here, we present a technique for anastomosis of the ureters from within the lumen of the ileal conduit, under direct visualization. We examine the rate of ureteral stricture using this method, and review the literature regarding ureteroenteric anastomotic complications with various techniques. Read More

    Replacement plasty allows to perform oncology surgery while maintaining body image and preserving renal function. Entero-ureteral anastomosis is a significant element in this procedure where the main responsible for the loss of renal function are stenosis, infection and reflux. Our group has performed 206 orthotopical vesical replacements (November 1981-November 1998), using a direct Wallace-type uretero-ileal anastomosis. Read More
