Abstract: Hardy and colleagues carried out “Renal autotransplantation” for the first time in 1963 to treat severe ureter injury and it has evolved as a method used for complex treatment of trauma, renal artery diseases or ureteral stenosis. In case of proximal ureter injury, ap-proximately 2/3 of which is iatrogenic, if the end-to-end anastomosis is not possible, renal autotransplantation, ileal ureter interposition or nephrectomy are alternative treatments. As technology advances, the use of ureterorenoscopy (URS) increases and in parallel with this iatrogenic injuries that occur during the process have increased as well. These types of injuries are generally in form of simple perforations (2–6%), but from time to time ureter avulsions are also observed (0.3%). In this article, a case is presented where renal autotransplantation is made following development of ureter avulsion during ureterorenoscopy process carried out due to right uret-eral calculi and treatment options are discussed in the light of literatures. © 2021 Turkish Association of Trauma and Emergency Surgery.
