Background: Congenital mid-ureteral stricture (CMUS) is a rare diagnosis almost exclusively repaired with ureteroureterostomy in infancy or early childhood. Case Report: We describe a unique case of a 2-year-old child with both a CMUS and ipsilateral obstructed megaureter, which was addressed in a single operative setting using a robotic Heineke-Mikulicz nondismembered ureteroplasty for the CMUS and a dismembered tapered extravesical ureteral reimplant for the obstructed megaureter. Conclusion: Compared with ureteroureterostomy, a nondismembered ureteroplasty for CMUS minimizes the risk of ureteral vascular compromise and can be particularly beneficial in cases where the affected ureter requires additional reconstruction. Use of robot-assisted technology for complex ureteral reconstruction in the pediatric population is safe and effective.
