Ureterocolic anastomosis


The procedure of uretero colic anastomosis is simple and is carried out completely outside the colon of the large intestine. This is the joining site of the ureters and the section of the intestine used for the diversion. There is the option of a refluxing or a non-refluxing type, and the two ureters can be joined into the intestinal segment either together or separately. It may be necessary for diseased or defective ureters, bladder or urethra, either temporarily or permanently.
