In contrast, many different techniques for distal ureterectomy
and cuff excision surgery have been developed to date, some of which have been abandoned due to recurrence and difficulties.
Forty-three initial biopsies had subsequent surgical resections (nephroureterectomy, n = 36; ureterectomy
, n = 5; nephrectomy, n = 2).
preserving the kidney was performed in only four cases and ureterectomy
was done in one case.
Additionally, it is important to make differential diagnosis between renal cell tumors and urothelial carcinoma because of the necessity of ureterectomy
during surgical procedure.

Patient had undergone surgical treatment consisting of fistulectomy and ureterectomy
scan done for all patients all of them had localized disease and treat- ed with radical Nephro- ureterectomy

Born in Saint John, New Brunswick, at two days old she was found to have a renal vein thrombosis, and by four days old she had had a left nephrectomy and a left ureterectomy
. Unfortunately, she went into renal failure and was rushed to the IWK Children's Hospital in Halifax, Nova Scotia, to start dialysis.
Partial nephrectomy or isolated ureterectomy
patients were also excluded, as these operations are associated with unique complication profiles and were outside of our primary study question.
In cases of blindly ending ureters, hypoplastic renal segments, which are drained by the ectopic ureter, or infrasphincteric ureteral orifices, a surgical approach such as heminephrectomy and ureterectomy
is largely considered to be the first-line therapy [3, 5].
Another patient with ureteral stricture from impacted stones failed laser endoureterotomy and went on to have an open segmental ureterectomy
