A ureteral stent, sometimes we called ureteric stent, is a thin tube
inserted into the ureter to prevent or to treat obstruction of the urine flow
from the kidney.
The stent is usually inserted with the aid of a cystoscope. One or both end
of the stent may be coiled to prevent it from moving out of place, this is
called a JJ stent, double J stent or Pig-tail stent.

Uses :
1. To prevent damaged to a blocked kidney, until a procedure to remove the
stone can be performed.
2. Placed in a ureter that has been irritated or scratched during a uteroscopy
procedure that involves the removal of a stone, sometimes referred to as a
basket grab procedure. Stents place. (to ensure that the ureter does not
spasm and collapse after the trauma of the procedure.)
Main complication:

Dislocation, infection and blockage by encrustation.

- Recently stents with coatings, such as heparin, were approved to
reduce the infection and encrustation to reduce the number of
extent exchanges.

Other complications:

Increased urgency and frequency of urination

Blood in the urine (hematuria)
Pain in the kidney, bladder, or groin
Pain in the kidneys during, and for a short time after urination. (these effects
are generally temporary and disappear with the removal of a stent)
Drugs used for the treatment of OAB (Over Active Bladder) are sometimes
given to reduce or eliminate the increased urgency and frequency of
urination caused by the presence of the stent.
Irritation of the urethra (because stents often have a thread, used for
removal, that passes through the urethra and remains outside the body)
Discomfort during strenuous physical activity.
Significantly hinder sex.
In men, ejaculation/orgasm the prostate may have movement that is
discomforting to the patient and similar to severe cramping or irritation.
