The ureter is a mobile organ that courses down the retroperitoneum, from the renal pelvis to the bladder. Up to 75% of ureteral complications are diagnosed after procedures. During pelvic surgery, and depending on the pathology of the patient, the ureter may be attached to different structures, distorting its normal anatomy. A key factor for diminishing ureteral injuries is the correct knowledge of its pathway.
