Extensive Perirenal Hematoma Formation Following D-J Stent Insertion in a Solitary Functioning Kidney. Description of an Unusual Complication

The insertion of a double-J ureteral stent is a popular urological procedure used to relieve renal obstruction caused by stone disease or genitourinary cancer. A 62-year-old woman was treated with a D-J stent for hydronephrosis of her solitary working left kidney, which was aggravated by renal perforation and the development of a large retroperitoneal hematoma. She was treated conservatively, with blood transfusions and the repositioning of a double-J stent in the collection system. The first and third months after stent placement, a noncontrast computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen was done, which revealed that the hematoma had stabilised. Six months after D-J repositioning, the hematoma was finally gone. While a standard procedure, ureteral stent placement is not without risk, and early detection and treatment of post-stenting renal hematomas necessitate a high clinical suspicion index. To avoid hematoma-related complications, it is important to keep a close eye on the patient.
