Abstract

We report a case, showing spontaneous disruption of a double J ureteral stent where the patient was subjected to endoscopic surgery. A 69-year-old woman had right hydronephrosis probably due to UPJ and UVJ stenosis. A double J ureteral stent (6Fr. 28cm, COOK) had been inserted at another institution. One month after the insertion, the ureteral stent spontaneously broke into 2 pieces. The stent then broke into 4 pieces 3 months later. She was admitted to our hospital for removal of the broken stent. We retrieved the stent through a semi rigid ureteroscope (10.9Fr. OLYMPUS) using a 2 prolonged grasper (5Fr. STORZ).
