ureterocele

[yoo͡rē′tərōsēl′]
Etymology: Gk, oureter + kele, hernia
a prolapse of the terminal part of the ureter into the bladder. The condition may lead to obstruction of the flow of urine, hydronephrosis, and loss of renal function. Cystoscopy and pyelography reveal the prolapsed ureter. Surgical correction is performed to prevent permanent damage to the kidney. Compare cystocele.

Neither ultrasound nor MRI studies were able to demonstrate hydroureter or ureterocele.
The right ureterocele was excised and Cohen type ureteroneocystostomy was performed.
We consider that patients with high risk for ureteral injury are those with a large median lobe, a ureter orifice that is atypically close to the bladder neck, a large ureterocele, a severe ureteral kink, and a history of pelvic radiotherapy or transurethral resection of the prostate.
1) In ultrasound imaging, irregular and edematous walls and adequate openings of the ureterocele can be detected by radiologists.

Other authors have questioned the clinical significance of hydronephrosis and suggest resorting to VCUG when the patient has ultrasound findings consistent with renal dysplasia or hypoplasia, renal cystic disease, cortical thinning, loss of corticomedullary differentiation, high-grade unilateral or bilateral dilation, alteration in the kidney number or kidney size, presence of ureteroceles or hydroureteronephrosis, or suspected bladder outlet obstruction (such as thickening of the bladder wall or ureters) (1,6.
The etiology of hydroureteronephrosis was neurogenic bladder secondary to meningomyelocele in five patients, a posterior urethral valve (PUV) in four patients, an obstructive megaureter in three patients and ectopic obstructive ureterocele in two patients.
De los pacientes tratados con RVU grado II, 8 casos (80%) presentaron UCGM normales, mientras que los 2 casos restantes (el 20%) disminuyeron su grado de reflujo a I, estando relacionados a un ureterocele destechado y a una disfuncion del vaciamiento vesical respectivamente.
