Answer

Depending on the type, duration, and location of the ureteral injury, surgical treatment may range from simple removal of a ligature to ureteroneocystostomy. The most common surgical treatments for ureteral injury are as follows:

  • Simple removal of a ligature
  • Ureteral stenting
  • Ureteral resection and ureteroureterostomy
  • Transureteroureterostomy
  • Ureteroneocystostomy
