OBJECTIVES To report the treatment outcomes of patients with extrinsic ureteral obstruction treated with metallic stents and to identify the factors predicting stent failure. METHODS A total of 52 patients with extrinsic ureteral obstruction as a result of malignancy (66 ureters) were treated with metallic stents (Resonance® ) and included in the study. The median observation period was 118 days. RESULTS The median survival time of these patients was 210 days, and the stent patency rate was… CONTINUE READING
