Abstract

Both iatrogenic and traumatic ureteral injuries are rare. Missed ureteral injuries are associated with increased morbidity. Therefore a high index of suspicion is warranted. The urologist should be familiar with several methods of identifying ureteral injuries and the evaluation should be tailored to the clinical situation. Most ureteral injuries are short transections and can be repaired with debridement and ureteroureterostomy in the proximal and mid-ureter or with ureteroneocystostomy in the distal ureter.
