ureteral obstruction
may be caused by intraluminal lesions, e.g. urolithiasis, or as part of pyelonephritis or by external compression of the ureter or as a congenital defect. Sudden blockage causes acute abdominal pain that lasts for several hours. Subsequently or if obstruction develops slowly the kidney on the affected side becomes hydronephrotic; if bilateral, renal failure follows.
ureteral reflux

ureteral rupture
rupture usually results from trauma; leads to urinoma or peritoneal accumulation of urine.
ureteral stasis

The new cystoscopy procedure involves no assembly and is safer, simpler, and more consistent than traditional cystoscopy--factors that we hope will make it easier to perform more often in the office for evaluation of bladder conditions (with or without simple cystometrogram testing), as well as during laparoscopic surgery, hysterectomy, incontinence/prolapse surgery, and other urologic procedures to ensure that the bladder and ureters are uninjured and to verify bilateral ureteral flow.
In this study, we investigated outcomes of URS as a primary treatment, and after failure of SWL in the treatment of proximal ureteral stones.

In general, ureteral stents are used in conjunction with the management of kidney or ureteral stones.
