Blind-ending branches of bifid ureters.
Three new cases are utilized to illustrate the anatomy, embryology, and symptomatology of blind-ending branches of bifid ureters. Diagnosis can usually be made by intravenous pyelogram. The complications are recurrent urinary tract infections, calculi, and hydroureteronephrosis. Selection of management by observation, resection, nephroureterectomy, or ureterolithotomy is discussed. The specific techniqie for simple resection is stressed.
