A Management of forgotten double J Ureteric stent in a young male: A Case Report
Keywords:Forgotten double J ureteric stent, encrustation
Urologic devices called Double-J stents (DJSs) are frequently used to treat urinary tract blockage. Advancement in endourology in last few decades has led to an increase in use of ureteric stents and so its related complications. Herein, we report a case of a 17 years old male patient of poor socioeconomic background from a remote village of Afghanistan, presented to our out-patient department with abdominal pain at the right flank. He had history of double J stent placement during right open pyelolithotomy 6 year before. However, no further details were available.
