Objective: To report one case of proximal migration of ureteral stent. To perform a bibliographic review about other cases and management to avoid this complication. Methods/Results: 48-year-old woman who presents right obstructive uropathy after gynecologic surgery . After the introduction of the right ureteral stent we observed a proximal stent migration. We put on a right nephrostomy tube and antergrade ureteral stent. Conclusions: The right stent length and proper location of the distal tip are important factors to avoid this complication.
