Summary

In this procedure, the provider excises and takes away a blocked or injured potion of the ureter and then joins the renal end of the remaining portion of the ureter to the healthy ureter on the other side of the body. The provider performs this procedure primarily if the length of the remaining ureter after removing the blocked or injured part is insufficient for anastomosis to the bladder.
