Generally short stenosis in the distal ureter is treated with ureteroureterostomy and ureteroneocystostomy, in complicated forms of stenosis there is a need of advanced techniques, namely vesicopsoas hitch and Boari flap.
The traditional open surgical techniques such as end-to-end ureteroureterostomy with or without psoas hitch or Boari flap for the iatrogenic ureteral injuries have shown the obvious drawbacks of relatively high rate of severe complications and poor vascular blood supply in the distal ureters [15].
Traditionally, the open surgical treatment of ureteric strictures included ureteroureterostomy, ureteral re-implantation, +/- psoas hitch, +/- boari flap, +/renal decensus, ileal ureter, autotransplant, or nephrectomy.
Usually an ureteroureterostomy in upper one third injuries or an ureteroneocystostomy with a Boari flap or psoas hitch, if required, for a tension free anastomosis, in middle third and lower one third, respectively, is carried out.

Repair of major injury to the pelvic ureter is generally best accomplished by ureteroneocystostomy or, in selected cases involving injury to the proximal pelvic ureter, by ureteroureterostomy.
