Abstract

Ureteral obstruction secondary to ischemia is the most common urologic complication of kidney transplantation. Although endoscopic management has shown satisfactory short-term success rates, surgical repair is considered the definitive therapy. To our knowledge, this procedure has been performed only through open surgery. We present a minimally invasive approach for reconstruction of a ureteral stricture in a renal transplant patient using the Da Vinci robotic system.
