Ureteric stents are commonly used in Urological practice and have a number of well recognised complications. A rare complication is knotting with associated difficult removal having being reported in only 15 prior cases. Various methods of removal have been described. Here we report an additional case where ureteroscopic holmium laser was successfully used to remove a knotted ureteric stent. A literature review of all previous cases of this rare complication is also presented.
