Example text

The 8-Fr dilator has been removed and the stent is being advanced over the guidewire into the 10-Fr sheath. The 10-Fr sheath acts as a conduit to prevent buckling of the stent in the urethra, bladder, or ureter. Tension must be placed on the guidewire while the stent is advanced. guidewire should be replaced through a ureteral catheter. Although balloon dilators are more expensive, they are less traumatic to the ureter than coaxial dilators. Ureteral Access Sheath Ureteral access sheaths were first developed in the 1970s to aid in difficult access to ureters for ureteroscopy (83).

The percentage of successful retrograde stent placements is lower than nephrostomy tube insertion which is nearly always successful in a dilated system (3,63). With very distal ureteral obstruction owing to advanced pelvic malignancies, retrograde stenting may be difficult because of the lack of “purchase” required to advance a guidewire or stent up the ureter (3,63). Recently, a third method of diversion involving a silicone polytetrafluorethylene coated tube that connects the renal pelvis to the bladder via a tunneled subcutaneous route has been described (64–66).
