Nephroureteral Stent Market Overview
A Nephroureteral stent is also known as ureteric stent is a thin tube inserted into the ureter to prevent or treat obstruction of the urine flow due to conditions such as kidney stone, tumors, infections, etc. It is done to restore urine flow through blocked ureters and retain the normal functions of kidney. These devices are inserted into the ureter during or after treating kidney stones or tumors and urinary incontinence. They are placed in ureters through a surgical procedure known as Ureteral stenting. One end of the device is placed in the urinary bladder while the other end remains in the kidney. The ends may be coiled to prevent dislocation of the stent. It is often left temporarily till the blockage is removed. The stent can be deployed on the right place using variegated endourological techniques and generally inserted with the assistance of a cystoscope. The length of these stents used in adult patients varies from 24 to 30 cm, stents come in different diameters or gauges, to fit different size ureters. It has been notified that normally a person can have nephroureteral stents for not more than 3 to 6 months. If they are left for longer duration, there can be a chance of secondary complications such as stone formation, urethral infection, etc. which makes removal of stents difficult.
