Introduction: In modern medicine in the field of urology, sometimes some techniques result in awful complications such as ureter strictures and complete avulsion. Case presentation: In this case series, we report four cases including a male and 3 female patients (age range: 55-80 years) who developed complete ureters avulsion during transurethral lithotripsy. The main action that has been done was autotransplant. All four patients discharged in good condition six days after surgery. At the time of discharge, no one had severe complications. Conclusion: As observed, repairing complete ureter avulsion can be considered as a safe and suitable procedure after complete evaluation.
