Abstract

Ureteric stents are indispensable tools in urology, especially endourology. Technical difficulties can arise during their placement and removal. It is therefore important that stent procedures should not be regarded as “minor.” This chapter describes the basic protocol for stent placement and describes some “tricks of the trade” to combat the technical difficulties. The tips, approaches, and instruments that are needed to deal with these problems are also described.
