It was reported that a female patient had a percutaneous nephrostolithotomy where an x-force nephrostomy balloon dilating catheter was used on (b)(6) 2018. A ct scan on (b)(6) 2018 was being completed for other medical reasons not related. The scan revealed a foreign body which was asymptomatic to the patient and was a coincidental finding on ct scan. A ureteroscopy showed what appeared to be part of a sheath measuring 7x7mm which was not collapsible or foldable and could not be removed during the ureteroscopy. The foreign body was removed percutaneously. A double-j stent and foley catheter was left in place after the foreign body removal. The patient was admitted on (b)(6) 2018 as a 23 hour observation patient, post foreign body removal and started on cephalexin 500 mg by mouth three times a day and continued on the same antibiotic at discharge from hospital admission. The pathology report gross examination of the foreign object was as follows, "it is a 0. 9 x 0. 6 x 0. 1 cm curvilinear portion of plastic having a lime green colored outer diameter and a tan-light blue colored inner diameter.
