The traditional open surgical techniques such as end-to-end ureteroureterostomy with or without psoas hitch or Boari flap for the iatrogenic ureteral injuries have shown the obvious drawbacks of relatively high rate of severe complications and poor vascular blood supply in the distal ureters .

: description of technique.
Key words: Laparoscopy; retrocaval ureter; ureteroureterostomy
Complex cases may necessitate using older techniques that utilize the recipient's native ureter, such as a ureteroureterostomy
Traditionally, the open surgical treatment of ureteric strictures included ureteroureterostomy
, ureteral re-implantation, +/- psoas hitch, +/- boari flap, +/renal decensus, ileal ureter, autotransplant, or nephrectomy.
Herein, a retrocaval ureter case managed with laparoscopic ureteroureterostomy
Repair of major injury to the pelvic ureter is generally best accomplished by ureteroneocystostomy or, in selected cases involving injury to the proximal pelvic ureter, by ureteroureterostomy

for retrocaval ureter: report of 7 cases.
Ureteral injury is a rare but serious complication of lumbar disk surgery, and only 15 cases have been reported since 1961.[sup.1]-[sup.5] Reported management options include ureteral stent placement, open ureteroureterostomy
and renal autotransplantation.
