Ureterocele

Ureterocele

Overview

A ureterocele is a congenital (from birth) disorder in which the ureter develops an out-pouching as it enters the bladder. Ureteroceles usually occur after frequent urinary tract infections. Treatment of the ureterocele usually involves the placement of a stent to relieve the obstruction and/or surgical repair.
