Renal autotransplantation for recurrent renal colic.

C. A. Olsson, B. Idelson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Renal autotransplantation as an alternative to ileal interposition has been done successfully in patients with repetitive episodes of renal colic. Urinary tract continuity has been re-established by anastomosis of a Boari tube directly to the renal pelvis. This has resulted in easy egress of recurrent calculi without pain. Furthermore, the musculature of the Boari tube seems to be adequate for prevention of vesicorenal reflux. The procedure has been devoid of electrolyte and mucous urinary retention problems associated with ileal interposition and it is advocated as an alternative in the management of such patients when medical therapy fails.
