Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present an unusual case of a fragmented, long forgotten double-J stent with incontinence as a result of partial extrusion of the lower fragment across the urinary sphincters. After reviewing the published data, incontinence as a presenting complaint, to the best of our knowledge, has not been reported for this condition previously.
