Complications following ureteroscopy.


We report 4 cases of ureteral injury and stricture formation following ureteroscopic stone manipulation. Possible etiologies of stricture formation and our methods of managing them are discussed. The complications of ureteroscopy have been reported only rarely and the ureteroscopist should be aware that the procedure is not always benign.
