Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A universal-length ureteral stent made of a biocompatible copolymer was designed specifically for easy antegrade internal placement. The double-looped distal end of the stent eliminates the need to measure the distance from the ureteropelvic to ureterovesical junction. If additional length is required, a portion of the distal loop is incorporated into the stent shaft. Interventional radiology practices benefit economically, as the universal-length stent is the only size required for the treatment of most ureteral obstructions.
