The INTRAVESICAL method was performed after radical nephroureterectomy via a Gibson or Pfannenstiel incision and included cystotomy with intravesical excision of a bladder cuff around the intramural ureter and ureteric orifice. The bladder was then closed with absorbable sutures.

After considering different surgical approaches, a transurethral resection of the left ureteric orifice was selected due to its relative simplicity and minimally-invasive nature.
Cystoscopy revealed a large mass arising from the bladder neck, extending along the base and covering the left ureteric orifice such that it was not visible.
It was also observed in this study that in most cases of urinary bladder or prostate carcinoma, percutaneous nephrostomy is preferable option as retrograde stenting could not be possible due to involvement of ureteric orifices by tumour.
If you are even remotely suspicious that a ureter has sustained thermal damage, recognize that immediate efflux of indigo carmine dye from the ureteric orifices does not predict delayed post-operative ureteral necrosis and a subsequent leak or fistula.
