Ureteral Stenting Can Make Ureteroscopic Management of Ureteric Calculus Safe and Effective

Dr. Harshit Patel | Dr. Shahaji Deshmukh [2]

Abstract: Ureteroscopy is a routinely performed procedure for the management of the ureteric calculus. Since the advent of ureteroscopy and lithotripsy, open surgery for ureteric calculus is less frequently reported as it requires large abdominal incision, more intraoperative and post operative complications and prolonged hospital stay. Routine stenting following ureteroscopy is common, particularly after ureteroscopic lithotripsy. Stones in the ureter can cause significant changes, such as edema or mucosal inflammation, at the location of a stone. If unstented, these changes may cause the patient to have obstructive symptoms and potential ureteral stricture after the procedure. Ureteral stents prevent ureteral stricture formation after ureteroscopy by dilatation of the ureter. To conclude it is advantageous to stent the ureter pre and post operatively for the treatment of ureteral stone disease, specially when associated with morbidity like pyonephrosis or ureteral narrowing or impacted ureteral stone. This study is intended to ascertain the advantages of insertion of ureteral stents after ureteroscopy and to determine the various complications associated with stenting.
