Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

Congenital ureteral valves are a rare cause of ureteral obstruction in children, with only 42 cases having been reported in peer-reviewed literature. Eight additional cases of ureteral valves are herein reported.

METHODS:

We report on the diagnosis and management of eight children with ureteral obstruction secondary to a ureteral valve.

RESULTS:

Eight children with congenital ureteral valves were managed by ipsilateral ureteroureterostomy, ureteropyelostomy, or longitudinal ureterotomy with excision of valve leaflets. The obstruction was relieved in all.

CONCLUSIONS:

Ureteral valves should be included in the differential diagnosis of ureteral obstruction in children. Reconstruction is curative.
