A method for placement of a circle nephroureterostomy tube in patients with cutaneous ureterostomies is described. The technique requires local anaesthesia only and, because the 16F tubes become encrusted less often in these patients than do ureteral stents, the tubes need to be changed only every 3 to 6 months.
