Subject: Chronic hydronephrosis surgical management

In all cases seen with hydronephrosis until today (around 100): strategy has

been consistently the same

* insert a stent if possible

* dissect the ureter what will give the diagnosis of the cause of the

hydronephrosis ie generally endometriosis, rarely compression only. Anyway

this becomes apparent during dissection.

* during dissection decide whether excision of surrounding endometriosis is

sufficient or whether a resection anastomosis is necessary (a reimplantation

almost always is a secondary option after failure as published)

Since dissection of the ureter was not done, I would suggest repeat surgery.

The prognosis of the kidney function is difficult to predict since the duration

that the hydronephrosis existed is unknown.
