Ureteral stricture is one of the most common complications following renal transplant. Current treatment options are limited to mainly surgery or balloon dilation, but mixed results and refractory cases present the opportunity for alternative treatments. Anterograde balloon cryoplasty of a benign ureteric stricture was performed in a renal transplant patient, after attempts with ballooning and stenting had failed. A 2-year follow-up demonstrates normal creatinine and no hydronephrosis on US images.
