Calicovesicostomy surgery in the patient with ureteral ruptu
Calicovesicostomy is a relatively uncommon surgical technique in which the bladder is anastomosed to the lower calyx of the kidney and used when there is no suitable ureteral tissue. This technique is better performed on large bladders. Usually, the calicostomy at the most dependent part of the hydronephrotic kidney is anastomosed to the vesicostomy at the bladder dome. The volume of the bladder should be at least 300 cc.

In this study, a 45-year-old woman who was referred, due to a right ureteral rupture during transurethral lithotripsy surgery. At first, the patient underwent ureteroneocystostomy surgery by a combination of boari flap and psoas hitch techniques. Due to the obstruction and necrosis at the anastomosis site, the patient underwent calicovesicostomy surgery.
