Ureteral stents and their use in endourology.
Ureteral stents have assisted urologists in the performance of surgery of the urinary tract for many years. They can have both diagnostic and therapeutic value, but are used most frequently as adjuncts to endoscopic or minimally invasive procedures. This review provides an update of the current uses for ureteral stents, technology of biomaterials, complications associated with indwelling ureteral stents and the future of stents in urology.
