Mrs. Stuti Mishra said Hello to Heathy Life with Treatment of Recurrent UTI
Mrs. Stuti Mishra was a 42-year old patient facing continuous problems of recurrent UTI and supra-pubic pain. When she was brought to Sharda Hospital, her condition was worse and her medical history confirmed that she underwent left pyelolithotomy with DJ stenting around 12 years prior. Regardless of the suggestions for stent removal by her previous surgeon, she ignored the advice. Radiological investigations disclosed a coiled DJ stent with encrustation in the urinary bladder. Other hematological and biochemical parameters were within normal limits. The patient was posted for suprapubic cystolithotomy under regional anesthesia. The vesical calculus encrusted around the coiled DJ stent was removed and the post-operative period was uneventful. This was a classic case of "forgotten" DJ stent migration, which formed a nidus for secondary vesical calculus formation.
