Różański W, Klimek L, Lipiński M, Kliś R - Cent European J Urol (2012)

Bottom Line: In recent years urologists have concentrated on the intense introduction of minimally invasive methods for the treatment of urinary tract diseases with major progress noted in the treatment of urolithiasis.Nowadays extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL), percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), and ureteroscopic lithotripsy (URSL) are widely used in the treatment of urinary tract lithiasis.One should remember that even minimally invasive medical procedures using the instruments retained in long-term contact with urine may be the cause of incrustation and stone formation.

ABSTRACT
In recent years urologists have concentrated on the intense introduction of minimally invasive methods for the treatment of urinary tract diseases with major progress noted in the treatment of urolithiasis. Nowadays extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL), percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), and ureteroscopic lithotripsy (URSL) are widely used in the treatment of urinary tract lithiasis. The aim of this study is to present examples of urinary tract lithiasis as the complication after minimally invasive methods used in the treatment of urolithiasis. One should remember that even minimally invasive medical procedures using the instruments retained in long-term contact with urine may be the cause of incrustation and stone formation.

Figure 0002: Double-J catheter with a small stone on its bladder end. Catheter easily removed via endoscopic manner.

Mentions: Catheters are encrusted to a different degree depending on the time of their presence in the urinary tract. Small stones can be removed endoscopically together with the catheters without any harm to the patient (Fig. 2). Analysis of such catheters under the scanning microscope reveals the stone on its end with a simultaneous encrustation process on other catheter sections and its lumen (Fig. 3A, B).
