BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Ureteral stents may cause significant morbidity, including pain, dysuria, hematuria, and infection. New biomaterials, coatings, and designs have been studied in an attempt to reduce stent-related symptoms, but to date, the ideal comfortable stent has not been developed. In order to facilitate development of a stent that will mold and change with patient movement, we examined stent and ureteral movement with changes in patient body position.
