The operation of transuretero-ureterostomy (TUU) is usually taken to mean the anastomosis of one ureter to its fellow across the midline. However, it can be used to describe the anastomosis of two elements of a duplex system or the joining of two ureters as part of a urinary diversion, either with a bowel conduit or a cutaneous ureterostomy (Fig. 6.1).
