Excerpt: ...At operation a very small stone was found in the ureter at the site of constriction which had caused ulceration and edema in the mucosa of the ureter at the second point of narrowing. Tumor in the lower abdomen, and particularly in the female pelvis, is often found to constrict the lower ureter and cause more or less dilatation. The ureter usually resumes an approximately normal size after the tumor is re Fig. 105.--Ureteral dilatation, right side. Left pelvis and ureter normal. moved and requires no surgical interference. In Fig. 105 the ureter is dilated above the level of the crest of the ilium and is markedly tortuous. The irregular shadows are explained by partial distention of the markedly dilated ureter and dilution of the injected medium by retained fluids. The outline of the dilated pelvis is suggested by hazy shadows. At operation a tumor in the right broad ligament was found causing pressure on the ureter, but not involving it. In Fig. 95 the dilated calyces were caused by a pelvic tumor pressing on the ureter. Various chronic conditions, such as stricture at the meatus, ureterocele, and atonic dilatation of the ureter, are usually accompanied by marked distention of the ureter. In Fig. 106 a large ureterocele was found on cystoscopic examination. Its outline is visible in the pyelo-ureterogram at the caudad end of the ureter. The ureter is markedly dilated throughout and tapers gradually toward the renal pelvis. The pelvic dilatation is moderate in degree and in character is both mechanical and inflammatory. In Figs. 107 and 108 the right ureter is dilated markedly from the meatus to the renal pelvis. It is tortuous and narrower at the portion extending from the pelvis to the first point of narrowing. The dilatation in more
