The identification of the ureters in some laparoscopic procedures is mandatory and is done by dissection. However, the dissection must not be regarded as a means to avoid ureteral lesions. One must always remember that after dissecting the ureters, they are no longer at their anatomical position. They will be displaced medially. This video shows a ureteral partial section after ureteral dissection during a laparoscopic Wertheim procedure. The repair of this lesions is also shown.
