What would you like to do?
side effects of a ureteral stent are pressure in the abdomen and escruciating pain when urinating. removal is not painful at all. I've just had a cystoscopy with laser destruc…tion and stent insertion yesterday.
it is the process when you seporate oxygen and air I LIKE TRAINS
Stents are removed same way they are placed, via a cystoscope. Patient is scoped and a grasper grabs the stent part that remains in the bladder.
There is a stone at the end of your ureter, the tube from your kidney draining urine into the bladder and the ureter is dilated around the stone.
ureter = the tube through which you pee. it is closed up but not completely.
Initially under anaesthetic with urethral dilators.Then the patient is shown how to do these procedures themselves as stricture are recurring
Obstruction or blockage in the ureter(s); the tubes that transport urine from the kidneys to the bladder.
it is not advised you do it yourself. Check with your physician or nurse to have it done professionally. See the related link for more information.
the removal of the stent does not hurt the only pain you will feel is when they insert the tube which lasts for about 30 sec.
Following balloon dilation or incision of ureteral strictures, placement of stents maintains the functionality of the ureters. Stents may also be used in the presence of kidne…y stones to manipulate or prevent stone migration prior to treatment.
Bleeding, Catheter migration or dislodgement, Coiling of the stent within the ureter, Introduction or worsening of infection, Penetration of adjacent organs (e.g., bowel, gall…bladder, or lungs)
Insertion is most often done through the skin (percutaneously); however, in the presence of kidney or ureteral stones, stenting is ideally done during cystoscopy.
thin catheters threaded into segments of the ureter that carry urine, produced by the kidney, either down into the bladder internally, or to an external collection system.
Normally, a ureteral stent re-establishes the flow of urine from the kidney to the bladder. Postoperative urine flow will be monitored to ensure the stent has not been dislodg…ed or obstructed.
