The stent is then removed after a few weeks via a camera procedure (cystoscopy), as it is no longer needed. The present study compared perfo...

... Our results can be used for cases in which the transplant ureter cannot be shortened further during the operation due to anatomical reasons. In these cases an individual risk prediction can be performed on the basis of the intraoperative perfusion assessment with the aim to facilitate postoperative management: In patients with a decreased intraoperative ICG ingress at the proximal ureter and/or the manifestation of further risk factors, prolonged ureteric stenting could possibly be beneficial in terms of preventing the manifestation of urinary leaks or stenosis, especially considering that outpatient ureteric stent removal is a procedure which can be performed safely [43]. ...
