JJ-stent placement

 

A stent is a plastic tube that runs from the kidney to the bladder inside the kidney tube (ureter). It has a loop at each end to prevent the stent from migrating to either your kidney or to the bladder. A stent is placed to facilitate drainage of urine from the kidney to the bladder.
