Endoscopic management of ureterocele and syringocele

Paul F. Austin, Douglas E. Coplen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Ureteroceles and syringoceles are congenital abnormalities that represent ballooning or dilated extensions of the ureter and bulbourethral gland duct (Cowper's duct) respectively. These abnormalities may result in obstruction of the urinary tract or abnormal urine flow causing urinary tract infections, pain, and other urinary symptoms. Since syringoceles occur infrequently, our primary focus is endoscopic treatment of ureteroceles, although the treatment principles are similar.
