Jayalaxmi Shripati Aihole*

Indwelling ureteral stents have been used temporarily in a variety of urological procedures for many years in adults, children as well as in infants. However their use is not without complications, therefore they should be ideally removed once their intended purpose is served in 6 to 8 weeks. One such untoward scenario, the proximal migration of JJ stent is though not uncommon, is challenge to retrieve. Author is describing here a conventional retrograde cystoscopic technique for its retrieval.
