Abstract

Ureteral obstruction secondary to retrocaval ureter is rarely reported in the urologic literature. Symptomatic retrocaval ureters usually present in the 3rd and 4th decade of life. Standard treatment involves ureteroureterostomy approximating the ureter anterior to the vena cava. We describe the initial presentation, imaging, port placement, and operative technique including video presentation of a robot-assisted laparoscopic repair of a retrocaval ureter.
