  1. Ureteral stenting (also known as double J stent) is the procedure to place a thin, flexible plastic tube that is temporarily in the ureter to help urine drain from the kidney into the bladder in the case of a blockage.

    Steps to use DJ Stent:

    • The doctor will insert a cystoscope through the urethra and into the bladder, visualizing the opening to the ureter.
    • A thin wire is then guided through the cystoscope, up the ureter, and into the kidney.
    • The stent is inserted over the wire.
    • A fluoroscope, a kind of x-ray machine, may be used to position the stent.
    • The wire and cystoscope are then removed.
