Ureteral reconstruction for complex strictures: a review of the current literature.

Int Urol Nephrol 2021 Nov 15;53(11):2211-2219. Epub 2021 Sep 15.

Department of Urology, University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine, Tampa, FL, USA.

Purpose: Frequently employed procedures for ureteral reconstruction include balloon dilation, pyeloplasty and ureteral re-implants. However, these procedures do not work for complex ureteral disease. The goal of this literature review is to report on techniques and success rates for the following techniques: buccal graft ureteroplasty, appendiceal interposition, transureteroureterostomy, ileal ureter and autotransplantation.

Transureteroureterostomy in children: a retrospective study.

Am J Clin Exp Urol 2021 15;9(2):163-169. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Bangalore Medical College and Research Institute Bengaluru, India.

Transureteroureterostomy (TUU) is a urinary reconstructive procedure seldom used but has a role when conventional reconstructive techniques are not possible. However, the concern is whether it places the opposite, non-diseased ureter and kidney at risk. Hence a retrospective study was conducted to evaluate indications, methods, and outcomes of transureteroureterostomy in children. Read More

J Pediatr Urol 2020 Apr 19;16(2):190.e1-190.e6. Epub 2019 Dec 19.

Department of Paediatric Surgery, Christian Medical College, Vellore, India; Department of Paediatric Surgery, PSG Medical College and Hospital, Coimbatore, India.

Introduction: Transureteroureterostomy (TUU) provides urinary drainage of both renal systems to the bladder via a single ureter and is useful in selected situations of complex urological reconstructions. Herein we discuss its use, advantages and complications in children with neurogenic bladders and high-grade (4/5) reflux who have undergone augmentation cystoplasty.

Patients And Methods: Children with neurogenic bladder complicated by unilateral or bilateral high-grade vesicoureteric reflux (VUR), who underwent TUU along with augmentation cystoplasty (BA), were selected from two institutions. Read More

Department of urology of FGBOU VO North-Western State Medical University named after I.I. Mechnikov, Saint Petersburg, Russia.

In case of stricture of the lower third of ureter in patients with duplex kidney, ureteroneocystostomy or transureteroureterostomy can be used. Anastomosis of the injured ureter of the upper pole with the pelvis of the lower pole is considered nontypical.

[Advances in surgical repair of ureteral injury].

Beijing Da Xue Xue Bao Yi Xue Ban 2019 Aug;51(4):783-789

Department of Urology, Peking University First Hospital; Institute of Urology, Peking University; National Urological Cancer Center, Beijing 100034, China.

Ureteral injury can be classified as iatrogenic or traumatic, which represents a rare but challenging field of reconstructive urology. Due to their close proximity to vital abdominal and pelvic organs, the ureters are highly susceptible to iatrogenic injury, while ureteral injury caused by external trauma is relatively rare. The signs of ureteric injury are difficult to identify initially and often present after a delay. Read More

Urology 2015 Jan 8;85(1):199-204. Epub 2014 Nov 8.

Division of Pediatric Urology, Cohen Children's Medical Center, North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, New Hyde Park, NY; Department of Urology, Weill Cornell Medical Center, New York, NY.

Objective: To describe a novel technique of ureteral reimplantation in patients with thick-walled bladders, which addresses the technical challenges and high failure rates seen in this population.

Methods: From 1997 to 2012, 45 megaureters were reimplanted in 26 children aged 2-11 years. Key surgical modifications included ureteral trough creation within the detrusor, formation of a distal ureteral split-cuff nipple, reliance on transureteroureterostomy (TUU) when the bladder would not support the reimplantation of 2 ureters, performance of psoas vesicopexy, and judicious utilization of ureteral stump augmentation in patients undergoing TUU.

Ureteral injuries sustained during robot-assisted radical prostatectomy.

J Endourol 2014 Mar 10;28(3):318-24. Epub 2013 Dec 10.

Vattikuti Urology Institute, Henry Ford Health System , Detroit, Michigan.

Background And Purpose: During the last decade, the annual volume of robot-assisted prostatectomies performed in the United States has risen steadily. Refinements in surgical technique, understanding of anatomy, and experience have led to more complex patients being offered surgery for management of organ-confined prostate cancer. Complication rates of robot-assisted prostatectomy have been reported in several articles; however, a paucity of data exists when evaluating ureteral injuries sustained during robot-assisted prostatectomy.

Osteoclast-like giant cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder.

J Chin Med Assoc 2009 Sep;72(9):495-7

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, Taichung Veterans General Hospital, Taichung, Taiwan, ROC.

Extraskeletal osteoclast-like giant cell (OGC) tumors are uncommon and have mainly been found in the breast and pancreas. OGC neoplasms of the urinary tract are extremely rare, and their histogenesis and biologic behavior remain controversial. Gross hematuria is the most common presenting symptom, as in transitional cell carcinoma. Read More

Retroperitoneoscopic transureteroureterostomy with cutaneous ureterostomy to salvage failed ileal conduit urinary diversion.

Eur Urol 2011 May 16;59(5):875-8. Epub 2009 Jun 16.

Department of Urology, Tohoku University School of Medicine, 1-1 Seiryomachi, Aoba-ku, Sendai 980-8575, Japan.

Reconstruction for failed urinary diversion is technically challenging, due to severe tissue adhesion around the anastomotic site. We report successful laparoscopic transureteroureterostomy with cutaneous ureterostomy via a completely extraperitoneal approach to salvage failed ileal conduit in two patients with necrotic ileal conduit and bilateral anastomotic obstruction, respectively. This novel, less invasive approach may offer a viable alternative to open surgical revision for failed ileal conduit urinary diversion. Read More

Augmentation ureterocystoplasty in boys with valve bladder syndrome.

J Pediatr Urol 2007 Dec 16;3(6):433-7. Epub 2007 Aug 16.

Pediatric Urology Unit, Department of Urology, Alexandria University, Raml Station, Alexandria, Egypt.

Objective: Children with valve bladder syndrome represent the worst end of the posterior urethral valve spectrum. When conservative measures fail to control recurrent infections, prevent deterioration of the upper tract (in the form of increasing hydronephrosis and or worsening of kidney function) and improve incontinence, augmentation cystoplasty is considered. In most of these boys, renal insufficiency precludes the use of intestine for augmenting the bladder. Read More

J Surg Oncol 2008 Jul;98(1):49-53

Urologic Oncology Clinic, National Cancer Center, Goyang, Gyonggi, Korea.

Objective: Of the many surgical options available for ureteral reconstruction during surgery for non-urologic pelvic malignancies, the efficacy of transureteroureterostomy (TUU) was investigated.

Methods: Ureteral reconstruction was dichotomized as follows: group 1, end-to-end ureteroureterostomy and ureteroneocystostomy (UNC) with or without a psoas hitch; and group 2, TUU. TUU was preferably performed when partial bladder invasion was suspected or patients had undergone prior surgery or radiotherapy. Read More
