Laparoscopic Dismembered Pyeloplasty of a Retrocaval Ureter: Case Report and Review of the Literature EUROPEAN UROLOGY Chung, B. I., Gill, I. S. 2008; 54 (6): 1433-1436


A retrocaval ureter is a rare entity that has traditionally been treated with open pyeloplasty techniques. In this paper, we describe the successful performance of a laparoscopic dismembered pyeloplasty for a retrocaval ureter and present important technical points. In reviewing the available literature about this technique, the laparoscopic approach should be considered to be first-line treatment for this anatomic anomaly due to the good track record, quick convalescence, and relative technical ease.
