Ureteric Stent Placement

Ureteric stent is a plastic tube that restores the urine flow from the kidney to urinary bladder through the blocked ureter. Like nephrostomy, it will relieve the pressure in the kidney and prevent its damage. The common cause for the blockage is stone and rarely scar or tumor. The procedure is performed either by the urologist through the bladder, or by the radiologist through the kidney.
