Abstract

Exteriorization of the ureteral stump in nephrectomy was devised by Dr. William Mayo and was clinically applied for the treatment of renal tuberculosis by Dr. John K. Lattimer. The method was used in eighteen cases of nephrectomy with successful results at our clinic during the past two years. Ureteral Exteriorization is considered one of the most reasonable methods of preventing possible local infection at the operative wound during and after nephrectomy of a severely infected kidney. We believe that instillation or continuous irrigation of antibacterial solutions through the exteriorized ureteral stump is a simple and useful procedure for the treatment of residual infection of the urinary tract after nephrectomy.
