This validated tool should become a standard evaluation technique of new stent technologies. Stones: Stenting as an Adjunct to Shockwave Lithotripsy Stenting prior to SWL is thought to preclude renal obstruction from stone fragments following SWL (9). More recently, the prophylactic efficiency of pre-SWL stenting has been called into question and is now a debated topic where some believe that stents in SWL patients not only lack efficacy to prevent renal obstruction, but may, in fact, impede the passage of stones fragments following SWL (10).
CONCLUSION Retrograde access to the urinary system is the first step in many endourologic procedures and all urologists should be adept at dealing with the nuances of achieving access. Ureteral stents are a vital part of the urological armamentarium and play a role in the treatment of stones, reconstructive urology, ureteropelvic junction obstruction, hydronephrosis of pregnancy, and ureteral obstruction. Development of novel ureteral stent coatings, new stent materials, and compounds loaded directly into the stent should improve patient comfort and reduce the risks of infection and stent encrustation.
