Summary— Twenty-one ureteric strictures due to bilharzia have been treated surgically in 13 patients. Two required nephrectomy; 19 had direct ureteric reimplantation into the dome of the bladder after excision of the strictured segment of ureter. A simple technique of reimplantation into the dome of the bladder is described and early results have justified its further use.
