Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A small amount of barium extravasated at the time of colonic surgery led to the development of a barium granuloma that caused unilateral ureteral obstruction. Although the barium was not detected on radiography or urography preoperatively, it was clearly visible at the time of ureteral exploration and ureterolysis.
