Patient Data

Age: 45

Left duplex collecting system, with both ureters containing ureteric stents.

An uncommon observation.

Case Discussion

Congenital renal anomalies are often identified.  Of these duplex collecting systems are one of the commonest.

This case shows a incidental duplex collecting system, at the time of imaging for an iatrogenic ureteric injury.  The operative approach involved stenting of both aspects of the collecting system, which is rarely seen.
