Thanks for your question.
Since ureteroenteric stricture may be understood as stricture of ureter and the intestine. From this limited documentation, this is not clear if there was stricture of ureter, or intestine, or both.
Please provide us some more information regarding the diagnosis and the method of repairing these strictures so that we may provide you the correct answer.
