Abstract

A universal-length ureteral stent made of a biocompatible copolymer was designed specifically for easy antegrade internal placement. The doublelooped 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.
