We report 7 cases in which grafts of ureter were used as tube and patch segments in urethral reconstruction and formation of a continent catheterizable stoma. The ureteral grafts survived without long-term stricture in all cases. Meticulous preparation of the graft and recipient bed is required for success, as previously demonstrated experimentally. When available, ureter is an excellent source of tissue for urological reconstruction.
