Managing a Retained Stent with Impacted Upper Ureteric Stones - The limits of RIRS

Dr. Chong describes his approach to treating a patient who, prior to being referred to him, was in a hypercoagulable state, and even after three separate retrograde intrarenal procedures, the patient still had a large stone burden that remained in the kidney as well as steinstrasse in the ureter that prevented the stent from being removed. Unable to gain access to the proximal ureter from below, Dr. Chong explains his use of an antegrade approach to address the ureteral fragments.
