Abstract

Indwelling ureteric stents are commonly used in the management of upper urinary tract obstruction. A rare complication is the knotting of an indwelling ureteric stent at its proximal coiled end. We present a case of a mid ureteric knotted stent that put the kidney at risk. Stent was extracted successfully by Percutaneous method, after failed minimally invasive methods.
