Indications for stent insertion have increased in recent years since their introduction in 1978; along with increase in their use and hence their complications. JJ ureteral stents are commonly placed for short term for prevention or relief of upper urinary tract obstruction and following reconstructive surgery. Long stay of JJ stents in the body causes undesired side effects. The forgotten stents can produce considerable morbidity and mortality.
