Abstract

Although the ureter is functionally simply a tube to transport urine, ureteric surgery requires detailed anatomical knowledge and advanced surgical skills, because the ureter has a delicate blood supply. Therefore, the urological surgeon must have distinct strategies available to bridge ureteric defects of various sites and lengths. Furthermore, handling during and after surgery should be individualized to the patient's pre- and intraoperative situation. In this review, the indications for reconstruction of a specific ureteric defect, the required techniques and postoperative recommendations are discussed.
