Purpose: The purpose of this study is to evaluate our experience of laparoscopic ureteroneocystostomy for mid and lower ureteral stricture in a tertiary center in North India. Materials and Methods: A total of 20 laparoscopic ureteroneocystostomy were performed with or without bladder flap procedures in 20 patients (13 females and 7 males) with various etiologies such as ureteric stricture, ureterovaginal fistula, endometriosis, and distal ureteric tumor at our hospital in a time frame from August 2013 to January 2017. Eight cases each presented after laparoscopic/open hysterectomy and postureterorenoscopic stone removal while two cases each presented secondary to endometriosis and distal ureteric tumor. Simple laparoscopic ureteroneocystostomy in 4, psoas hitch in 9, and Boari flap was done in 7 cases. Results: The mean patient age was 44.2 years (range 19–65), mean surgical time was 184.25 min (115–250 min.), mean amount of bleeding was 153.25 mL (90–250 mL), and mean hospital stay was 3.05 days (2–7 days). Female-to-male ratio was 1.3:0.7. There was one conversion to open during laparoscopic Boari reimplant because of inadvertent injury to external iliac vein. The mean follow-up was 22.35 months (6–45). All the patients were asymptomatic with the resolution of hydronephrosis on ultrasound and without any significant obstruction on renal scan. Conclusions: Laparoscopic ureteroneocystostomy with or without bladder flap (Boari) provides good functional outcomes with excellent success rates and minimal morbidity comparable to open surgery in patients with ureteric stricture.
