Laparoscopic treatment of the terminal ureter is indicated, in most cases, for patients with vesicoureteral reflux (return of urine from the bladder toward the kidneys) who have failed the more conservative or endoscopic treatments, as well as for those with obstructive lesions caused by endourologic instrumentation, gynecological surgeries and complex pelvic laparoscopic procedures.
Acute or chronic fistulous lesions may also receive laparoscopic treatment. Tumors of the distal ureter and secondary stenosis to radiation therapies, in turn, also generate some controversy regarding this treatment.
Laparoscopic ureteral reimplantation is a procedure, still evolving, which is being established and performed only in a few well-developed centers that do more complex surgeries, like the ones called reconstructive surgeries.
MASTER CLINIC offers this type of procedure, providing significant benefits to its patients, such as less bleeding and reduced hospital stay and convalescence.
