Case Reports of Single-Stage Techniques to Manage Heavily Encrusted Retained Ureteric Stents

We report two extreme cases where retained ureteric stents resulted in loss of the affected kidney in one case and concomitant kidney-bladder stone formation in another. The first case was a 45-year-old woman with a non-functioning left kidney due to heavily encrusted retained stent with large bladder calculus at the distal coil. She underwent laparoscopic left simple nephrectomy and vesicolithotomy. The second case was an 83-year-old man with heavily encrusted right stent resulting in partial staghorn calculus and bladder calculus at the proximal and distal coils respectively. He underwent cystolitholapaxy, ureteroscopic laser lithotripsy and percutaneous nephrolithotomy in a single session.
