Abstract

Contralateral ureteral metastasis after renal cell carcinoma (RCC) nephrectomy is uncommon. In such cases, a mass in the contralateral ureter needs to be differentiated from the primary ureteral tumor. If high grade primary ureteral tumor is found and total nephroureterectomy is performed, dialysis is introduced. In cases of metastasis of RCC, the kidney may be preserved by local treatment by partial ureterectomy. We report a case of contralateral ureteral metastasis after nephrectomy for right RCC. We underwent an originative method of pure laparoscopic partial ureterectomy and ureteral end-to-end anastomosis.
