Minimal invasive nephron-sparing sugery emerged as viable surgical options for small renal mass.Renorrhaphy is common performed in two layer with continuing running suture, which are secured in place with Hem-o-Lok clips using sliding clip technique.We report a case of a 74-year-old man with history of left hand-assisted laparoscopic partial nephrectomy that performed seven years ago due to incidental left renal upper pole renal cell carcinoma.This time, he had experienced about right distal ureteral stone with hydronephrosis.He received the ureteroscopic surgery and found hem-O-Lok mimicking distal ureteral stone.We reviewed the literature of nephron-sparing surgery rare complication.From the case, we should be aware of possibility of migrated Hem-o-Lok clips serving as the stone formation.
