1. Exploratory laparotomy.
2. Low anterior resection with proctectomy.
3. Subtotal colectomy with descending colon to anal anastomosis
and diverting loop ileostomy.

The Dx is Rectal and Descending colon cancer with ureteral injury

Although your description lacks significant detail to ensure correct coding, it appears that the best choice for the procedure is as follows. we would require operative notes for accurate answer:
44155: Colectomy, total, abdominal, with proctectomy; with ileostomy
44626: Closure of enterostomy, large or small intestine; with resection and colorectal anastomosis (eg, closure of Hartmann type procedure)
50780: Ureteroneocystostomy; anastomosis of single ureter to bladder
or if ileoanal anastomosis was performed
44157 : Colectomy, total, abdominal, with proctectomy; with ileoanal anastomosis, includes loop ileostomy, and rectal mucosectomy, when performed
