In 1987 Firlit et al described their results using Hodgson's technique of the modified extravesical Gregoir-Lich procedure. They coined the term detrusorrhaphy or extravesical ureteral advancement to describe this technique. During the last 4 years we performed this reimplantation on 211 ureters in 132 patients. Of the patients 79 had unilateral and 53 had bilateral procedures. Included were 6 megaureters requiring ureteral tailoring and 9 uncomplicated duplications. All but 1 patient were cured of reflux. No postoperative obstruction was encountered. Our results indicate that this is an excellent procedure to repair vesicoureteral reflux with minimal morbidity and short hospital stay.
