Ureteral Stents are used to ensure the patency of a ureter, which may be compromised, for example, by a kidney stone. This method is sometimes used as a temporary measure, to prevent damage to a blocked kidney, until a procedure to remove the stone can be performed. Indwelling times of short duration for an ordinary MEDPRO STENT (WHITE and BLUE). For a longer period, the MEDPRO LONG DURO STENT (YELLOW) is indicated to hold ureters open, that are compressed by tumors in the neighbourhood of the ureter or by tumors of the ureter itself. In many cases these tumors are inoperable and the stents are used to ensure drainage of urine through the ureter. Stents may also be placed, sometimes referred to as a ‘basket grab procedure’. Stents placed for this reason are normally left in place for about a week. These stents ensure that the ureter does not spasm and collapse after the trauma of the procedure. Normal Stent material is Radiopaque Tecoflex® engineered for ease of placement and patients compliance. Long Duro Stent is made of Carbothane®. MEDpro’s Ureteral Stents are supplied in sterile peel-open package. They are intended for one-time use only. Periodic evaluation is suggested.
