Abstract

The authors present a case report of multiple renal ruptures after flexible ureteroscopic lithotripsy (FURL) with holmium laser. Multiple renal ruptures following flexible ureterorenoscopy have not been reported so far. The etiology remains unclear. We like to share this case to make urologists aware of this unusual complication and discuss possible causes and therapeutic approaches.
