Introduction & Objective :

Ureteric reimplantation (UR) is indicated for the management of strictures, reflux and reconstruction after pelvic surgery. We investigated the outcome of this procedure at our institution.


Methods :

In this retrospective study, we analysed the short and medium-term outcomes for patients who underwent UR over the last seven years. Data analysis included Students T-test, calculated as mean ± SEM.


Results :

Eighty two (82) UR were performed in 75 patients. This included 40 females and 35 males with an average age of 47 years (range 17-82 years). UR were performed in 6 subsets of patients: pelvic mass excisions n=15 (20%), bladder & ureteric reconstruction n=14 (19%), iatrogenic injury n=7 (9%), trauma n=1(1%), post-transplant ureteric stricture n=34 (45%) and ureteric malignancy n=4 (5%).


The preoperative average haemoglobin (Hb) =121(±3.7), creatinine (Creat) =122 (±7.9) & eGFR=58 (±3.0), and early postoperative Hb =107 (±2.79), Creat= 114 (±8.0), eGFR= 60 (±3). Analysis revealed a statistically significant (P<0.0002) difference between preoperative and postoperative Hb and no statistical difference in creatinine and eGFR. Post-operative scans (USScan, MAG3) demonstrated significantly improved drainage, and UR for functional reconstruction showed significant symptom improvement. The average hospital stay was 11.8 days, with a mortality rate of n=6 (8%) with these patients dying due to underlying conditions. No significant morbidity or mortality was reported due to UR.


Conclusions :

Ureteric reimplantation is a robust procedure with minimal morbidity. Our study demonstrates good outcomes, with no deterioration in renal function at one and two-year follow-up.
