A total of 13 patients with ureteral lesions wider than 12 cm in length and/or previous radiation treatment have been submitted to reconstructive treatment. Four patients with lesions after radiation therapy were treated with ileal ureter and contemporary bladder augmentation, one with ureteroneocistostomy combined with psoas hitch procedure and one combining psoas hitch and Boori Plap technique. The association of psoas hitch with Boari Flap technique were also used to treat two patients with the undesired outcome of vascular procedure. A patient after complete ureteral stripping following ureteroscopy was submitted to Heal bladder substitution. Two renal autotransplantations were performed in a patient with extensive stricture of the ureter following multiple endourological procedure and in a patient with negative outcome of previous attempt of open ureteral defect reconstrucion following abdominal trauma.
