Ureteric reimplantation in open surgery is a fairly straightforward procedure and can be done extravesically or transvesically. Laparoscopically ureteric reimplantation using a transvesical approach can be challenging because the space is limited and the risk of the ports slipping out is high. It also involves a high level of skill in suturing precisely [1–3]. In extravesical reimplantation, suturing the bladder mucosa to the ureter and creating a submucosal tunnel may require dexterity and patience.
