A ureteral stricture is a narrowing in the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder. When a narrowing in the ureter occurs, (for example, by urinary stones), the kidney cannot function normally and will become damaged over time. Also, dilation of the kidney (called hydronephrosis) will occur.
