A ureteral stent is a thin flexible tube inserted directly into the ureter in order to prevent or remedy obstruction of the urinary passage from the ureter. The length of these stents used for adult patient’s ranges between 30 and 24 inches. Additionally, different diameters or sizes of stents are available, to suit different ureter sizes. This allows treatment options to be tailored to the individual, as well as to the extent of obstruction.
Urinary stents are made of either metal silicone or plastic. They are placed directly into the bladder via the urethra valve. Ureteral stents can either be made percutaneously, via surgery or by means of an outpatient procedure. Depending on the type of ureter that is affected, the procedure can be either a single needle or multiple needles.
