Summary

In this add–on procedure, using ultrasound and/or fluoroscopy (imaging technologies that display live images on a video monitor) to guide him, the provider deliberately occludes the ureter to block the passage of urine, typically for treatment of a ureterovaginal fistula due to unsuccessful treatment with urinary diversion via a nephrostomy (urinary diversion via a catheter placed in the internal structures of the kidney and attached to external drainage). The procedure includes radiological supervision and interpretation.
