Resection of Fibroepithelial Polyps of the Ureter by Holmium Laser in a Female Patient

Author(s): Mohammad Rahimi Mohsen, Dadashkarimi Hamed*, Dadashkarimi Mojtaba

Introduction: Fibroepithelial Polyps (PEP) are rare and benign lesions of the ureter. Several methods have reported for treatment of these lesions like pyeloplasty (robotic or laparoscopic, Ultrasonography (USG), contrastenhanced CT, and contrast-enhanced MRI can be used to detect fibroepithelial polyps in the urothelial system.
Case Presentation: A 41 year old female referred to my hospital by left renal pain. She had done sonography and intravenouspyelography formerly. Sonography detected grade 2 hydronephrosis in the left kidney and IVP detected filling a defect in the upper tract of left ureter, these findings suggested presence of a ureteral polyp. In the patient’s ureteroscopy, we encountered many FEP ranging from 5 mm to 20 mm in length that occupied the left proximal ureter which was resected by performing holmium laser. In following up patient by ureteroscopy and imaging one month after surgery we didn’t detect any problem in imaging and patient.
Conclusion: Using ureteroscopic resection of Fibroepithelial Polyps by holmium laser in patients is a safe method, that can be considered instead of open surgery in the patients with these lesions
