PMID:  978805     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We reviewed 63 consecutive cases of gunshot wounds of the ureter seen during a 15-year period. The importance of prompt recognition and aggressive surgical management is emphasized, with particular attention being placed on adequate debridement and spatulated splinted watertight ureteroureterostomy. Our philosophy of management for individual injuries is discussed along with our complications and results. This series is the largest reported to date of ureteral gunshot wounds.
