Stent migration, infection, fragementation and encrustation are among the known complicationso f ureterals tents. Objective: To share our experience in the management of stentse ncrustationi n our centre. Material and methods: We retrospectively studied all patients with ureteral stent encrustation which needed intervention either surgically or by ESWL in our centre (HospitalU niversitiS ainsM alaysia).F or a periodo f 9 years (zooz-zoto)a, ll patientsw ith stent encrustationw ho needed surgical or ESWL interventions were included in the study. Demographic data, risk factors and outcome of treatments were studied.T reatmentd ecisionsw ere made basedo n the clinicala nd imagingf indings. Results: 36 patients were included in the study. Mean age at presentation was 48.47 years. There were 2i males and t5 females. The stents were inserted for stone diseases alone(8o.6%)c, ombination of stone diseasesa nd ureteric strictures('n.'t%u),r eteric strictures alone(5.6%a) nd in a case of malignant disease(2.82). The treatment options were ESWL, vesicolitholapaxy, vesicolithotripsy, ureteroscopy, retrograde intra renal surgery (RIRS) and PCNL. All the stents were successfully removed. 583% of the stents were removed in a singles ession.T he rest of the stents needed additional interventions.
