Abstract

Authors report a case of a 31 years old patient who eliminate a urinary stone which contains a platinium coil. Five years ago, this patient had a percutaneous nephrolithotomy. A persistent hematuria was successfully managed with angioembolization of a lower polar artery branch. One of the coils was deployed too distally. It was not efficient, it rolled itself up in the pseudoaneurysm cavity. Different physio pathological hypothesis are developed to explain this expulsion.
