    this being a female patient i would advise ureteral reimplantation keeping future pregnancy in mind.. simple ureterocoele incision risks VUR . multiple punctures/ fenestrated VUR can be done but the size of ureterocoele and the gender slightly tilts this to surgical reconstruction.. however final decision of patient if she agrees to incision, regular followups and future surgery..
