Double-J ureteral stents are widely used in endourologic surgery. To insert a ureteral stent is usually a simple and uncomplicated task. However, the stent can be misplaced when a surgeon advances it too far up the ureter. We report a novel technique to remove a misplaced stent in the renal pelvis.
