Although electrohydraulic lithotripsy (EHL) is regularly used to fragment urinary calculi, it has the potential to cause significant renal tract damage. We report a complication of EHL use during flexible ureterorenoscopy, where recovery was complicated by delayed, prolonged haematuria secondary to the formation of a pseudoaneurysm in an interlobar renal artery. Embolisation was achieved by the insertion of a coil.
