A significantly higher number of bound sperm, regardless of their source to the epithelium of the UVJ-SST than to the infundibular SST, has been observed in our current study under both in vitro and in vivo conditions, indicating a possible difference in the receptivity to sperm ligands between the UVJ and infundibular epithelial cells, thereby inducing a preferential binding to the mucosa of the UVJ compared to the infundibular mucosa.
18,19) Success rates are higher for non-ischemic structures (not due to surgery, radiation or stone impaction), shorter strictures ([less than or equal to] 1cm), and strictures located at the extremes of the ureter (UPJ or UVJ due to improved blood supply).
