Abstract

Vascular injury is an uncommon, but serious, complication of percutaneous nephrolithotomy. Hyperselective angioembolization is an effective means of managing this complication with few reported adverse sequelae. We report a case in which an embolization coil placed after renal hemorrhage subsequently eroded into the collecting system more than 1 year postoperatively and was passed through the patient's urinary tract.
