Abstract

Two cases of retained ureteral stents presenting with breakage and encrustations

Author(s):Amit Sharma, Mukund Andankar and Hemant Pathak

Ureteral stents (Double J stents) have become an integral part of today’s urologic practice. But complications like stent migration, encrustation, stone formation and fragmentation have been found when these stents are kept for prolonged period. So, it is mandatory that these stents should be removed as early as possible to prevent complications and morbidity. We report two patients with broken retained DJ stents with encrustations and calcification.
