Ureteral stricture is a late complication of ureteroscopy (URS) and can be challenging to treat stones when present concomitantly. Ureteral stones may fail to spontaneously pass secondary to a distally located ureteral stricture. Retrograde access may be difficult or unable to be obtained depending on the degree of the stricture and presence of stone impaction. This chapter will focus on the treatment options for a ureteral stone with a distal ureteral stricture.
