Bilateral ureteric replacement with ileum.


In connection with a report of a case, authors discuss in outline the possibilities of ureter replacement. If both the ureters are injured, they can be substituted with one single segment of the intestine, as it happened in their case. Authors raise the idea that a longer segment of the intestine used for substitution provides sufficient capacity and isoperistaltic function, and this may protect from the negative effects of possible vesicoileal reflux. In this case, the reflux does not spread to the kidneys even if the ureteroileal was not made with anti-reflux technique.
