dc.description.abstractUreteric stricture dilation as an interventional uroradiological technique was initiated locally in March 1991. In ureteric dilation two approaches are feasible. The retrograde cystoscopic route is undertaken by a uroradiology team in theatre, and the renal antegrade percutaneous route is undertaken in the radiology interventional suite. This study reviewed the results of percutaneous ureteric stricture dilation undertaken over the last five years. Eighteen dilations in 16 patients (10 males : 6 females) were analysed. There was an overall success rate of 61 %. We found the procedure to be safe and effective with minimal complications. No mortality resulted from the procedure. The indications for its use are fully discussed.en_GB
