Analysis of ureteric stent kinking forces: the role of curvature in stent failure.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To further characterize the kinking forces and degree of curvature that result in failure of various stents, as malignant obstruction of the ureter causes failure of about half of ureteric stents. MATERIALS AND METHODS Several stents (Silhouette 4.6 F and 6 F, Applied Medical, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA; Sof-Curl Tecoflex 6 F, Gyrus ACMI… (More)
