Ureteral injury is a recognized complication of gynecologic surgery. During operative laparoscopy performed to treat extensive endometriosis of the pelvic sidewall, a 1.5-cm portion of the right ureter was resected and was repaired successfully. Repair of a resected ureter may be effectively accomplished endoscopically by experienced operative laparoscopists.
