Inverted-Y ureteral duplications are a rare duplication anomaly with few cases reported in the literature. We report a novel minimally invasive approach to managing inverted-Y duplications in two females who presented with continuous urinary incontinence and were found to have an ectopic insertion of the duplicated ureter. The ectopic segment was excised laparoscopically without complication in the outpatient setting with resultant cure of the continuous incontinence. This represents the first report of a laparoscopic approach to this rare anomaly.
