Ureteral Stenting

Ureteral Stents are tubular indwelling devices designed to provide support and maintain patency of the ureter, which may be blocked or obstructed. The indications for placement of a ureteral stent include, ureteral stricture, obstruction by a stone, tumor. In addition a repair or surgical anastomosis of a ureter would require the placement of a ureteral stent.
