Ureter an Innocent Bystander: Lower Ureteral Stricture Following Angioembolisation of Uterine Artery

Author(s): Tushar Aditya Narain, Manjeet Kumar, Shrawan Singh, Gopal Sharma, Shantanu Tyagi

Lower ureteric strictures are a common cause for unilateral hydroureteronephrosis, commonly resulting from previous surgeries, weather endoscopic, laproscopic or open. Devascularisation of the ureter resulting in fibrosis forms the underlying pathophysiology of stricture formation. We report a case of ureteral stricture resulting from angioembolization done for a bleeding arteriovenous malformation (AVM) of the uterus.
