Retrocaval ureter is a rare congenital disorder and surgery is necessary when the patient is symptomatic or having significant functional obstructions. The two cases referred to our center with severe hydronephrosis on their right sides. In both cases further evaluation with CT scan showed the diagnosis of retrocaval ureter. The retrocaval segment of the both ureters were isolated and after the excision of the narrow segments, end to end anastomosis have been done with transperitoneal laparoscopic technique. The laparoscopic ureteroureterostomy is a safe, effective and minimally invasive procedure and should be considered as a standard treatment for retrocaval ureter.
