Ureteral reimplantation is a procedure commonly performed by both urologists and pediatric surgeons. Although the vast majority are successful, there are some patients in whom technical considerations or bladder/ureteral abnormalities militate against success. We review our experience in 19 patients with multiple failed reimplants. The reasons for their failure, the investigations required to document such, and the management of these difficult problems will be discussed. In our hands, 95% of these patients ultimately became reflux-free and nonobstructed.
