Abstract

Ureteral double-J stent implantation has become a routine procedure in the management of a variety of urinary tract pathologies. Although this is a safe and simple procedure, there can be unexpected severe complications such as malpositioning, encrustation, ureteral erosion, intravascular migration, hematoma and ureterovascular fistula. Intraoperative fluoroscopic examination and postoperative imaging modalities are useful in early diagnosis and prevention of these complications. We present a case of right ureteral perforation during retrograde double-J stent implantation. To our knowledge ureteral perforation due to double-J stent placement has not been previously described.
