Abstract Ureteral obstruction with impaired urine flow is the most common urological complication following renal transplantation. From December 1976 to December 1997, 869 kidney grafts were performed by our kidney transplantation group, 96 from living related donors and 773 from cadaver donors (736 first grafts and 37 regrafts). A stricture of the ureter (SU) was observed in 27 cases with a follow-up ranging from 18 months to 18 years after the graft and 11 months to 11 years after the… Expand
Urological complications in kidney transplantation: ureterocystostomy versus uretero-ureterostomy.
TLDR
The shift from U-C to U-U did not change the incidence of urological complications, but with U- U there was a significant decrease in the number of postoperative urinary infections, an easier possibility to resolve ureteral stenosis with endourology and no reflux. Expand
Ureteral stenosis after kidney transplantation: interventional radiology or surgery?
TLDR
Today’s indication for surgery and interventional radiology in correcting the US after kidney transplantation is evaluated to evaluate the therapy of this condition has changed in the last few years. Expand
The First Case of Ureteral Duplication in a Combined Liver-Kidney Transplantation
TLDR
A kidney with an ureteral duplication, while rare, can be satisfactorily used also in combined liver-kidney transplantation and is reported in the specific setting of multiorgan transplantation. Expand
Urologic complications in kidney transplantation.
TLDR
An important factor in the reduction of early urologic complications has been the routine use of a JJ stent, which allowed us a conservative approach in this setting. Expand
Results of pyeloureterostomy after ureterovesical anastomosis complications in renal transplantation.
TLDR
Pyeloureterostomy is a safe and permanent treatment for complications of ureterovesical anastomosis and gives excellent results. Expand
Prolonged ureteral stenting in obstruction after renal transplantation: long-term results.
TLDR
Modern endourologic procedures have replaced open reconstructive surgery in most patients with ureteral obstruction after renal transplantation, because they may offer a definitive treatment with low morbidity. Expand
Transfer of ureteral carcinoma in a transplanted kidney presenting by early stenosis of the proximal ureter
TLDR
This case report is the first to describe accidental transfer of urothelial cell carcinoma in the ureter by transplantation, highlighting the possibility of malignancy when early stenosis is not related to the anastomosis. Expand
Experiences in kidney transplantation with duplicated ureters.
TLDR
The authors' ureterocystoneostomy procedures with duplicated ureters were safe and useful in kidney transplantation. Expand
Duplicated ureters and renal transplantation: a case-control study and review of the literature.
TLDR
It is concluded that transplantation of a kidney with a duplicated ureter is safe and yields equal outcomes as compared to single-ureter donor kidneys. Expand
Long-term graft survival after urological complications of 695 kidney transplantations.
TLDR
Surgical treatment of urological complication during year 1 after kidney transplantation did not increase the risk of overall graft failure, graft failure or death, and results indicate that long-term graft survival is not affected by a surgically treated urology complication. Expand

Late ureteral obstruction after kidney transplantation
TLDR
It is concluded that a percutaneous nephrostomy may be required in patients with rising creatinine and incipient hydronephrosis even long after transplantation has been performed. Expand
Urological complications following renal transplantation
A total of 1016 consecutive renal transplants performed between 1976 and 1990 were analysed retrospectively to determine the incidence of urological complìcations and possible predisposing factors.Expand
Management of ureteral stenosis after renal transplantation.
TLDR
Ureteral stenosis in the early postrenal transplant period can be safely and effectively treated by percutaneous dilatation and stenting, with few side effects and long-term success. Expand

TLDR
No single cause for the increased incidence of ureteric obstruction since 1986 has been identified but continued attention to technical detail and further study of this trend is warranted. Expand
Incidence, diagnosis, and treatment of ureteric stenosis in 1298 renal transplant patients
TLDR
Of 1130 patients who had undergone a total of 1298 kidney transplantations, 40 developed a stenosis of the ureter, of which 40 developed significantly later, 3–10 years after kidney transplantation. Expand
Urological complications in 1,000 consecutive renal transplant recipients.
TLDR
The urological complications in the first consecutive 1,000 renal transplants at the transplant center are reported with a minimum followup of 12 months, and most ureteral complications were treated by an open operation, although in recent years endoscopic techniques have become more common. Expand
Urological complications of renal transplantation: the impact of double J ureteric stents.
TLDR
Double J stents have proved to be a useful adjunct in the management of renal transplant related urological complications and all 16 patients who had a ureteric stent inserted as a prophylactic measure at the time of transplantation made uncomplicated postoperative recovery. Expand
[Urologic complication of renal transplantation. Importance of the length of the ureter].
TLDR
The results show that transplantation in the iliac position gives rise to more complications than transplantations in the pelvic position, and inversion of the superior pole of the kidney leads to a greater number of urological complications. Expand

TLDR
Endo-urological cold-knife incision of ureteral stenosis as the first-line treatment for upper urinary tract obstruction in renal transplants is recommended. Expand

TLDR
Internalised ureteric stenting is a safe and effective means of managing or preventing ureTERic reconstruction complications in renal transplant recipients. Expand
