Abstract

Urologic complications occur in 0.5% to 30.0% of patients after renal transplantation, independently of the method of urinary tract reconstruction. Most authors prefer the ureteroneocystostomy (UNC) to other types of methods. The occurrence of urologic complications is less frequent after UNC than ureteroureteral anastomosis (UUA) but the latter technique has been infrequently reported. Complications after both methods result in a substantial mortality rate. Our method of choice is the UUA if the lower urinary tract of the recipient is healthy.
