Urol Case Rep
We report a 31 year old female with urologic history significant for right ureteropelvic junction obstruction managed with open right pyeloplasty in 1996 with recurrent stricture managed with right ureterocalycostomy in 1997 along with right distal ureteroneocystostomy for iatrogenic distal ureteral stricture. She developed symptomatic stone episodes and recurrent urinary tract infections and elected to proceed with shockwave lithotripsy. Postoperatively she developed a large liver hemorrhage requiring supportive care and endovascular embolization.
