Handbook of Urinary Stents: Basic Science and Clinical Applications

by Noor Buchholz, Oliver Hakenberg, Junaid Masood, Christian Bach

This book presents a concise overview of contemporary research and the clinical application of urinary stents, used in various forms and shapes in the urethra, prostate and ureter. These organs form part of the urinary system, have different shapes and pathophysiology, and so require different stent adaptations. The book is divided into six broad sections such as ureter stents, polymer stents, metal stents, lower urinary tract stents, prostate stents, and urethral stents. These sections are discussed through some chapters such as history of ureteric stents, physiology of stent flow, stent materials and designs, ureter stents: indications, and complications of ureteric stents and how to deal with them. Other topics discussed include indwelling ureteric stents: the patient’s stent experience and health-related quality of life, the memokath stent, the ureteral metal mesh stent, the allium stent, complications of metal stents in the ureter, and using the wallstent in the management of benign ureteroenteric anastomotic strictures in bricker deviation.
