Preliminary experimentation in rats and dogs, demonstrates the potential for ureteral regeneration employing polyglycolic-polylactic acid cylinders. Although prolonged patency was not consistently achieved, potential for predictable biodegradation with simultaneous transitional cell and smooth muscle ingrowth holds promise for future work.
