Percutaneous techniques to manage urinary fistulas have had limited success. To overcome this, self-closing metallic clips were developed to occlude the ureter. The clips are applied through a percutaneously placed 30-F Teflon sheath. A case is reported in which the clips and new technique were successfully used.
