Retroperitoneal sclerosis syndrome and the method of its treatment have been discussed.
Two patients with bilateral hydronephrosis over several years period were presented. The
patients were bilaterally operated and their ureters were delivered from scars and transposed
intraperitoneally. In both patients (in four ureters) the result has been good.
