Initial experience utilizing metal stents in the treatment of ureteroenteric anastomotic strictures has yielded promising results. However, the long-term efficacy of metal stent placement remains unknown. Further, there is a paucity of literature to describe the technical considerations associated with the surgical management of obstruction after metal stent failure. We report the case of a 67-year-old man undergoing bilateral ureteral metal stent removal and ileal conduit creation following stent failure and recurrent obstruction.
