Retrograde ureteroscopic incision for the treatment of nonureteroenteric ureteral strictures.

Abstract

A variety of methods are available for the management of patients with ureteral strictures. Ureteroscopic, retrograde incision using the holmium laser was performed on an outpatient basis or with hospitalization for <24 hours in three patients with strictures of varying etiologies. With follow-up of 4 to 12 months, all patients have remained asymptomatic without radiographic evidence of recurrent strictures. Retrograde ureteroscopic incision is an effective, minimally invasive option for patients with benign ureteral strictures.
