OBJECTIVES: We propose a modification to open nephroureterectomy. METHODS: By a single incision (lumbar incision) a percutaneous ligation-section of the finely dissected terminal ureter is performed. RESULTS/CONCLUSIONS: This technique offers a better quality of life in the immediate postoperative period, shortens the surgical time, and it has the advantage of being oncologically safe, avoiding a double surgery.
