Ureteral reimplantation is an effective treatment for primary vesicoureteral reflux. Recent efforts have been directed toward reducing the perioperative morbidity of open reimplantation. We have refined the technique of laparoscopic extravesical ureteral reimplantation with emphasis on minimal tissue dissection, achieving reliable detrusor closure, and downsizing ports and instruments. With our current technique, excellent results comparable to those of established open procedures are achieved… CONTINUE READING
