Abstract

Purpose: To determine the need for postoperative cystography following extravesical ureteroneocystostomy for renal transplantation. Materials and Methods: The clinical courses of 200 consecutive kidney transplant recipients who underwent urinary tract reconstruction by parallel incision extravesical ureteroneocystostomy were reviewed. Results: Five of the 200 recipients did not have the study because of early mortality (1) or medical problems (4). Grade I vesicoureteral reflux was present in 5 (3%) of 182 unstented allograft ureters and 5 of 13 stented allograft ureters. Two patients (1%) underwent repeat ureteroneocystostomy, one for obstruction and one for extravasation. The cystograms were normal in both patients. Conclusions: Routine retrograde cystography is unnecessary following urinary tract reconstruction by parallel incision extravesical ureteroneocystostomy.
