Abstract

Two patients presented with cervical cancer causing renal failure secondary to ureteral obstruction. Percutaneous ureteral stents were placed allowing restoration of renal function, while radiotherapy was administered. This methodology may offer a temporary means of bypassing obstructed ureters, and is associated with low morbidity and minimal surgical risk.
