Abstract

Forgotten JJ stents are cited as one of the major disadvantages when compared with percutaneous nephrostomy (PCN) for relieving obstructed kidneys. However, published literature is scarce regarding ways of removing them without open exploration. Two recent cases are reported where extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) and endoscopic intracorporeal lithotrity were used to remove JJ stents.
