Ureteral endoprostheses can be complicated by incrustations, sometimes making it impossible to withdraw the stent. A case in which the use of cistolithotripsy and of extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy (ESWL) allowed withdrawal of a double J ureteral stent with large incrustations is reported. The stent was placed 3 years before. Epidemiology, aetiology and therapeutic aspects of encrusted ureteral stents are discussed.
