Omento-ureteroplasty and Omento-skin-patch Substitution Ureteroplasty

  • Richard Turner-Warwick
Part of the Clinical Practice in Urology book series (PRACTICE UROLOG)


The results of ureteric surgery are often compromised by the characteristics of the surrounding fatty tissue, which is poorly vascularised and resists infection badly. Consequently, almost any healing reaction tends to result in fibrosis, which often forms a dense frozen mass around a ureterotomy or a reconstruction. This may compromise its urodynamic mobility and function.
