prolapse of the end of the ureter into the bladder; may obstruct urine flow
a birth defect that affects the kidney, ureter and bladder
a congenital (from birth) disorder in which the ureter develops an out-pouching as it enters the bladder
a congenital (present from birth) disorder resulting when one of the ureters, the tubes through which urine flows from the kidney to the bladder, swells and develops a pouch as it enters the bladder, causing a blockage and abnormal urine flow
a congenital saccular dilatation of the terminal portion of the ureter
a cystic dilatation of the ureter as it inserts into the bladder
a cystic dilation of the distal ureter at the level of the ureteral orifice
MS = Cystic dilatation of the ureter with ballooning of the ureteral orifice into the lumen of the bladder. AN = cystic dilat of ureter UI = D014518
the portion of the ureter closest to the bladder becomes enlarged because the ureter opening is very tiny and obstructs urine outflow; urine backs up in the ureter tube.
A cystic dilation of the bladder end of the ureter that often is obstructive. It may be ectopically placed in the bladder.
A ureterocele is a congenital abnormality found in the urinary bladder. In this condition called ureteroceles, the distal ureter balloons at its opening into the bladder, forming a sac-like pouch. It is most often associated with a double collector system, where two ureters drain their respective kidney instead of one.
