Anomalous implantation of ureter
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Congenital deviation of ureter
- Crossed ectopic ureter
- Displaced ureteric orifice
- Ectopic ureter
- Retrocaval ureter
- Transcaval ureter
- Retrocaval Ureter-. a rare congenital abnormality resulting in the ureter passing dorsal to and being obstructed by the inferior vena cava.
- Ectopic Ureter-. a congenital anomaly in which the ureteral orifice drains into an abnormal location.
- Ectopic Ureterocele-. a ureterocele in which some portion of the ureterocele is situated permanently at the bladder neck or in the urethra. the orifice may be situated in the bladder, at the bladder neck, or in the urethra. (adapted from glassberg ki, braren v, duckett jw, jacobs ec, king lr, lebowitz rl et al. suggested terminology for duplex systems, ectopic ureters and ureteroceles. j urol 1984; 132(6):1153-1154.)

Your kidneys make urine by filtering wastes and extra water from your blood. The urine travels from the kidneys to the bladder in two thin tubes called ureters.
The ureters are about 8 to 10 inches long. Muscles in the ureter walls tighten and relax to force urine down and away from the kidneys. Small amounts of urine flow from the ureters into the bladder about every 10 to 15 seconds.
Sometimes the ureters can become blocked or injured. This can block the flow of urine to the bladder. If urine stands still or backs up the ureter, you may get a urinary tract infections.
Doctors diagnose problems with the ureters using different tests. These include urine tests, x-rays, and examination of the ureter with a scope called a cystoscope. Treatment depends on the cause of the problem. It may include medicines and, in severe cases, surgery.
