Ureteroscopy with rigid instruments in the management of distal ureteral disease.

Abstract

The ureter is accessible to direct vision for diagnosis and treatment because it is pliable and attached firmly to the bladder. Instrumentation is in the process of development. A generally applicable technique for rigid ureteroscopy within the distal ureter and examples of use in patients with stricture, transitional cell carcinoma and calculi are reported.
