Paraureteral Diverticula of the Bladder
A paraureteral diverticula is a congenital bladder diverticula, which develops dorsal or lateral of the ureteral ostium without evidence of subvesical obstruction (Hutch, 1961). With increasing bladder filling and increasing size of the diverticulum, the ureter drains into the paraureteral diverticula. Vesicoureteral reflux is often associated. A large paraureteral diverticula can cause subvesical obstruction by compression of the urethra. The surgical treatment, if necessary, includes the excision of the diverticula and ureterocystoneostomy.
