Morphological and physiological changes in the urinary tract associated with ureteral dilation and ureteropyeloscopy: an experimental study.

Abstract

The gross and microscopic effects of four common modes of ureteral dilation and ureteroscopy were examined in 26 renoureteral units in 13 minipigs. Acutely, ureters subjected to mechanical (bougie, Teflon, or balloon) ureteral dilation and ureteropyeloscopy (UPS) demonstrated active mucosal bleeding with multiple sites of perforation, whereas ureters… (More)
