PATIENT'S CLAIM: The severing of both ureters
was a negligent surgical error.
Cystoscopic diagnosis and treatment of ectopic ureters
in female dogs: 16 cases (2005-2008).
The right ureter
was dilated, filled with the same density material and appeared blunted distally.
Transperitoneal and retroperitoneal approaches have been used in all segments of the ureter
The patient was put on Intravenous Urography (IVU) to evaluate the function of kidneys to check the course of ureters
and to rule out any existing pathology along their course.
6,15-17) Although a NET metastatic to the ureter
would be exceptionally rare, it has been reported at least once in the literature.
An allograft nephrectomy was performed at first, in which the middle and distal allograft ureters

Arterioureteral fistula is a direct communication between an artery and ureter
that presents with hematuria.
Fusion of two ureters
at the midureter level with a bridge, complete duplex system with an H shaped ureter
appearance is a very rare situation.
also identified with mild fullness in left lower moiety ureter
One of these patients was being treated for advanced gastric cancer and had over 20 fibroepithelial polyps in both ureters
This fibrosis leads to entrapment and obstruction of retroperitoneal structures, notably the ureters
