It is easy to misperceive the end of the distal ureter and perform an oncologically suboptimal bladder cuff excision, particularly in patients where exposure is difficult (e.g., an obese patient) and the excision is limited due to concerns about excising the contralateral ureteric orifice. Postoperative surveillance guidelines[sup.17] recommend a surveillance cystoscopy at 3 months after radical nephroureterectomy, and an incomplete distal ureteric resection usually manifests as a visible ureteric orifice at the time of cystoscopy.
4.: Intraoperative images illustrating transurethral resection of the left ureteric orifice. At cystocopy fungal accumulation (A, arrow 1) and a swollen left intravesical ureter (A, arrow 2) adjacent to a normal appearing ureteric orifice was observed (A, arrow 3).
Normally benign and asymptomatic, CCEG was found to be obstructing the left ureteric orifice, leading to progressive hydronephrosis of the left kidney with ensuing acute azotemia.
Both ureteric orifices were visualized and 0.032-inch guidewire passed into the ipsilateral ureter containing the stone.
The bladder wall was unremarkable with normal site and morphology of the ureteric orifices. Residual urine was sent for culture and sensitivity and was again positive for Klebsiella pneumoniae.
Diagnostic cystoscopy showed 2 separate ureteric orifices on the right side of the trigone (Fig.
Otherwise urethra, ureteric orifices and bladder were normal.
Cystoscopy revealed anteriorly displaced ureteric orifices and compression of the dome of the bladder.
