Renal pseudoaneurysm: a rare and potentially fatal complication following ureteroscopy and laser fragmentation of stones

Ureteroscopy and laser fragmentation of stones is a commonly used method to treat ureteric and renal calculi. We report the exceedingly rare finding of a renal pseudoaneurysm in an interpolar renal artery following ureteroscopy and laser stone fragmentation, which was successfully managed with angioembolisation.
