Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The use of ureteral stents to assure continuity and patency of the upper urinary tract has become common in endo-urology. We present an 82-year-old bedridden woman with hydronephrosis and pseudomonas sepsis. Because of ureteropelvic junction stenosis a stent was inserted. Shortly thereafter the stent fragmented spontaneously into 5 pieces. The importance of being familiar with endo-urological manipulations and their complications is emphasized.
