OBJECTIVES: To report our initial experience with laparoscopic Boari flap ureteral reimplantation and to review the main technical elements in ureteral reconstructive surgery.

METHODS: In a 10-year period we performed 23 laparoscopic ureteral reimplantations. Three cases required a Boari flap. Two patients presented ureteral stenosis above the iliac vessels and the third one a urothelial tumor of the pelvic ureter.

RESULTS: Two cases were completed laparoscopically; the third one was electively converted to open surgery to avoid prolonged OR time. Mean operative time was 276 minutes (270-290 min). There were no intraoperative complications. Mean hospital stay was 6.6 days. One patient presented postoperative UTI (Clavien 2). One patient developed with history of sever arteriopathy and aortorenal by pass developed ureteral stenosis proximal to the ureteral reimplantation eight months after the operation.

CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic Boari flap ureteral reimplantation is an affective technique for ureteral reconstruction, safe and reproducible, reserved for cases of ureteral pathology in which the distance to bridge between the bladder and the ureteral stump is long.
