JJ stents are used for the minimally invasive management of benign and malignant ureteric strictures. As they have significant side effects, long term metallic stents have been introduced in order to improve the quality of life index and avoid frequent stent exchanges.
The purpose of this poster is to present our experience with the Memokath 051 TM; a thermo-expandable segmental nickel-titanium alloy metallic stent which has proved to be effective in the minimally invasive management of ureteric strictures.
It does not require routine exchange, is resistant to encrustation, well tolerated by patients and easy to remove.
