Abstract

Ureteral injuries secondary to noniatrogenic trauma are uncommon. Only 2% to 3% of knife stab wounds to the abdomen result in ureteral injury. As a basic rule, ureteral stenting is mostly sufficient for small lesions, and only larger injuries require open reconstructive techniques. We did laparoscopic ureteroureterostomy of an isolated ureteral injury via retroperitoneal approach following a stab wound in a 59-year-old male. This is the first reported case of laparoscopic repair for ureteral injury following a stab wound in the Japanese literature.
