Ureteral Stents Are Soft, Hollow Tubes That Are Temporarily Placed In The Ureter
Ureteral Stents

One of the challenges associated with Ureteral Stents is the potential for complications. The most common complications associated with ureteral stents include infection, urinary tract infections, stent migration, and stent encrustation. In addition, patients may experience bladder spasms or discomfort during urination, and some may require additional procedures to remove the stent or to address complications.

In order to minimize the risk of complications, patients who undergo Ureteral Stents placement are typically advised to drink plenty of fluids and to avoid activities that could cause the stent to move or become dislodged. In addition, patients may be prescribed antibiotics or other medications to prevent infection or to manage pain or discomfort. Regular follow-up appointments with a urologist or other healthcare provider are also important to monitor the effectiveness of the stent and to address any complications that may arise.
