Summary

In this procedure, the provider detaches the ureter on one end, cuts off any diseased portion, and attaches the remaining portion back to the bladder. Providers perform this procedure on patients with a duplicated ureter, typically a congenital condition involving either two ureters arising from a single kidney and draining urine into the bladder after combining into one, or one ureter draining into the bladder and another into supporting structures like the vagina, urethra, etc.
