Therefore, we believe that contrast-enhanced imaging modalities should not be used routinely in the preoperative period, except for patients with suspicion of urinary tract abnormalities (e.g., horseshoe kidney and pelvic ectopic kidney) or obstruction (e.g., ureteropelvic or ureterovesical
obstruction and ureteral stricture) in ultrasonography or NCCT.
Computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen and pelvis showed a 3-mm calculus in the left ureterovesical
junction (UVJ) with mild hydroureteronephrosis with fluid collection in the perinephric space, and extravasation of the contrast medium at the ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) level, as observed on the delayed film [Figure 1].
extricate the ureter from its tunnel up to the level of ureterovesical
The positioning of the fenestrations of the ureteral catheter was somehow laborious, once it was not easily advanced sometimes, especially nearby the iliac vessels and the ureterovesical
(viii) In 7 renal transplant cases, 3 lesions were found contralateral to the side of the ureterovesical
Findings of ultrasound or CT scanning in two groups showed one to three stones measured 3 mm to 11 mm in urinary tract system from calyces to bladder in which at least one stone has been localized between ureteropelvic and ureterovesical
junction and exceptionally two patients with only one calyceal stone in Group A.
