Technical challenges and increased morbidity of open reconstruction for uretero-ileal strictures have led to a search for minimal invasive treatments as an alternative solution. The insertion of a thermo-expandable ureteral Memokath 051 ® metal stent across benign uretero-ileal anastomotic stricture in orthotopic neobladder has not been described in the English literature. Herein, we describe a case of a woman with a Hautmann neobladder and a 3.5 cm benign stricture of the right uretero-ileal anastomosis that was treated with insertion of a thermo-expandable ureteral Memokath 051 ® metal stent.
