  • 1Department of Urology, College of Medicine, Soon Chun Hyang University, Seoul Korea.


Ureteral stricture is a problem that always has confronted urology. The development of balloon dilatation has introduced new modalities for the management of ureteral stricture disease. We experienced the ten patients of the ureteral stricture from July 1988 to April 1990. The following results were obtained. 1. Transluminal balloon dilatation is simple, safe technique for ureteral stricture. 2. After dilatation. most cases of stricture were improved on urography immediately. but follow up results were not so much improved. 3. Success rate of ureteral balloon dilatation was low (40% ). Therefore, we felt that secondary therapy modalities should be considered if first attempt was failed.
