Minimally invasive techniques have gained popularity in pediatric surgery. Among these, is the robotic approach for ureteral reimplantation in children with vesico-ureteral reflux. We describe main indications of this surgery, our surgical technique as well as trouble shooting of anatomical variants and the post-operative management. We also provide a description of other techniques described in the literature and a brief review of outcomes of published series.

To describe our experience and analyze the outcomes of robot-assisted laparoscopic ureteral reimplantation (RALUR) and conventional laparoscopic ureteral reimplantation (LUR) in treating benign distal...
To describe a novel, minimally invasive surgical technique, robotic-assisted laparoscopic dismembered extravesical cross-trigonal ureteral reimplantation (RADECUR) for primary obstructive megaureter (...
Robotic surgery has been slow to be fully accepted in the world of pediatric urology largely because of its initial application directed towards adult use and because of the inherent high cost associa...
The term "megaureter" is an entirely descriptive designation for a number of different entities. It is crucial to distinguish between primary and secondary forms of megaureter and between obstructive ...
We experienced an extremely rare case of ureteral sextuplication with a blind-ending ureter originating from the upper pole. The patient had six separate ureters and six renal pelvises with one ureter...
Ureteral stents have been widely used in many urological operations. Although there are several reports regarding the effectiveness of long-term ureteral stents for malignancy ureteral obs...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Memokath 051 ureteral stent as a long-term temporary and minimally invasive means of providing ureteral drainage in ...
The specific aim of this study is to validate our hypothesis that the magnetic ureteral stents have the same amount of adverse effects as the more commonly used non-magnetic ureteral stent...
This study concerns patients having had an infection on their prosthesis (hip, knee,..) and for whom a 2-step exchange of prosthesis has been done. A 2-step exchange consists in explantat...
The purpose of this study is to determine the clinical effects of a triclosan stent on adherent bacteria, stent biofilms, and patient urine cultures in patients with an indwelling triclosa...
Stones in the URETER that are formed in the KIDNEY. They are rarely more than 5 mm in diameter for larger renal stones cannot enter ureters. They are often lodged at the ureteral narrowing and can cause excruciating renal colic.
Absence of urine formation. It is usually associated with complete bilateral ureteral (URETER) obstruction, complete lower urinary tract obstruction, or unilateral ureteral obstruction when a solitary kidney is present.
Surgical procedures performed using a computer that remotely controls surgical instruments attached to mechanical arms designed to perform the tasks of the surgeon.
Pathological processes involving the URETERS.
Cancer or tumors of the URETER which may cause obstruction leading to hydroureter, HYDRONEPHROSIS, and PYELONEPHRITIS. HEMATURIA is a common symptom.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
