Abstract

A pliable, easy to place, double pigtail, internal ureteral stent made of elastomeric polyurethane is described. The tapered distal pigtail end minimizes bladder irritation and the combination of a pusher and absorbable suture enables optimal placement of the proximal pigtail end in the renal pelvis. Ten stents used in eight patients remained functional without bladder irritation for a mean period of 8 months (range, 2-14 months).
