Abstract

Although temporary or definitive complete ureteral occlusion is rarely needed, there is a considerable number of reports introducing different devices to achieve this goal, most of which can be inserted with minimally invasive procedures. Easy placement is considered of paramount importance, as the candidates are very often in bad general condition as a result of previous surgery, radiotherapy, or other palliative treatments for cancer. A device that can be inserted and removed percutaneously is presented herein. It can be employed in cases of ureteral fistulas resulting from radiotherapy and ureterosigmoidostomy with good results. The technique is simple and not time consuming.
