OBJECTIVES: To review the outcomes of the ureteroenteric strictures treated by endourological techniques in our department, and to compare our long-term results with other reported series with similar follow-up and number of patients. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 27 ureteroenteric strictures treated from March 1994 to June 2003, with a mean follow-up of 30.2 months (1 day-53 months). 13 cases underwent ballon dilation + permanent double J catheter(3 of them antegrade) 8 patients underwent endoscopical incision + double J catheter (5 of them with Acucise® RESULTS: 12/21(57,14%) renal units improved and/or remained stable. We emphasize the absence of peroperative complications except 1 case that had a very poor oncological prognosis and died of septicemia 1 day after balloon dilation. CONCLUSIONS: Endourological treatment of ureteroenteric strictures has demonstrated to provide good fuctional results on the short and midterm in patients that open surgery, although being the treatment of choice, would be too aggressive due to their disease, age, morbid conditions,…
