  • The authors describe a case of iatrogenic right ureteric injury post duodenectomy and right hemi-colectomy. Renal autotransplantation was chosen as the treatment for the upper ureteric injury. This was successfully performed and the renal function of the transplanted kidney was subsequently preserved. The advantages and disadvantages of this approach are discussed.
