(12) Cases of ureteral amyloidosis in which malignancy could not be excluded preoperatively or intraoperatively, or cases in which ureteral involvement precluded renal preservation have been treated with nephroureterectomy
. (4) Alternative surgical treatments may be utilized in patients in whom biopsy can confirm amyloidosis prior to surgery, and include ureteroneocystostomy, resection with end anastomosis of the ureter, and autotransplantation.

According to a report of a large series of patients with UUT-UC treated with radical nephroureterectomy
(RNU), the 5-year recurrence-free survival rates of pT4 and N1-3 diseases were only 4.7% and 29%, respectively, and therefore the application of multimodality therapy for Stage IV UUT-UC disease may be considered.
A right laparoscopic radical nephroureterectomy
with thrombectomy of the inferior vena cava was performed.
She had no history of asthma; and she had a history of renal AML and received right nephroureterectomy
