Abstract

During the last 25 years 100 patients have been subjected to transureteroureterostomy. In 2 cases postoperative death was attributable to other pathologic processes. We treated 94 donor units successfully in this manner. An additional 2 units, normal for several years after transureteroureterostomy, had periureteral fibrosis and stricture owing to the inferior mesenteric artery syndrome and required another definitive surgical procedure. Ninety-seven recipient kidneys remained normal after the procedure.
