Patients with stricture disease from ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction, malignancy, external compression, ureteroenteric anastomosis, and transplant ureteroneocystotomy, as well as patients with less than six months followup were excluded.
Long-term results of endoureterotomy for benign ureteral and ureteroenteric strictures.
The two most common types of ureteroenteric anastomosis during the procedure are the refluxing Bricker and Wallace techniques.
The objective of the present study was to perform a meta-analysis of all studies that have compared ureteroenteric stricture rates between both surgical techniques.
Studies with comparative data between Bricker and Wallace ureteroenteric anasatomoses were eligible for inclusion.
The following information regarding each eligible trial was recorded: author names, journal, year of publication, study type, enrolment dates, length of follow-up, total number of patients, total number of ureters, patient demographics, history of radiotherapy, indication for ureteroenteric anastomosis, imaging modality for diagnosing ureteroenetric stricture, incidence of ureteroenteric stricture per renal unit (i.
Four published studies containing comparative data on Bricker and Wallace ureteroenteric anastomoses were identified (Table i).
The main long-term complications of ileal neobladders are infections and stone formation, ureteroenteric
stricture, voiding dysfunction, metabolic abnormalities, tumours, and perforations.
