The evaluation of the complications of uretero-neocystostomy is very scant in the literature. The objectives of this study were to determine the indications for uretero­neocystostomy and to evaluate the complications of different techniques. This retrospective descriptive study was conducted in the Gezira Hospital for Renal Diseases and Surgery, Sudan between January 2001 and January 2004. A total of 65 patients were enrolled in this study. All of them underwent reimplantation of either one or both ureters for various indications. The methods of reimplantation were direct, Lich Gregoire, Cohen, Boari's and ileum substitution. The mean follow-up period was18 months. The 65 patients underwent a total of 77 reimplanted ureters. Of them, 39 ureters were gynecological ureters, 21 were renal transplant and 17 others had miscellaneous indications. The direct method was used for 25 transplanted cases (27.5%), Lich Gergoire for 40 patients (51.9%), Cohen for eight patients (10.4%) and Boari's for seven (9.0%). Leakage and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) were diagnosed in four patients each (4.8%), two had hydronephrosis while one each had obstruction and necrosis. Our study indicates that gynecological ureter was the leading indication for ureteral reimplantation and the incidence of complications was comparable to the literature.
