Dr. Irv Loh answered:

Is it risky to get a heart stint in a artery that already has a stent?

Depends

Heart
Stents within stents are not uncommon, but risk is more often related to technical issues of placement and location. Skilled and experienced operators can perform these interventions safely, but each situation is different and one must ask the doctor to determine and explain the risk.

What are symptoms of damage to urethra, bladder or ureter after urethral stent removal and is there a way to determine damage without imaging?

Stent removal

Stenting
If you are referring to a ureteral stent removal there are very few side effects associated with their removal. The length of time they were indwelling could have an effect on whether they are encrusted with stone or not. Imaging with i.v. dye and cystoscopy would be appropriate if symptoms remained after 3 to 4 weeks from removal.

Just had a ureter stent placed Friday. I feel like I have to pee all the time. Anything I can do to help me not feel this way.

Stents

Micturition
Unfortunately ureteral stents cause quite a bit of bladder irritation. You can get over-the-counter urinary tract analgesics or have your urologist prescribed a prescription strength urinary analgesic

Dr. Simon Kimm answered:

blood clots in urine have stent from narrow ureter due to tumor. clots passing are painful and blocks my urine. what could be the cause?

Several causes.

Urine
The presence of a stent in the urinary tract can cause irritation to the lining of the ureter and bladder causing bleeding. Tumors, besides obstructing, can bleed if they cause any erosion of the ureteral lining. If you are passing large clots and blood, a known risk of stents is the development of a communication between a blood vessel and the ureter. Please see your physicians for evaluation.

I hv blateral hydronephrosis with 4mm stone @ left VUJ n10mm@right upper ureter.is it possible to do ESWL to break the stones w/out doing RPG n stent?

Depends on symptoms

Pain
4mm stone should pass on its own. 10mm stone would likely break up with ESWL, but primary stent placement might be required if severe right sided flank pain present. Metabolic stone evaluation necessary in view of bilateral stones. Probably have seen a urologist as UR aware of hydronephrosis & stone pathology. Certainly discuss with him/her.

Dr. David Koota answered:

I Had Surgery To Remove 2 Stones In Ureter After Surgery Developed Urinoma From Ruptured Ureter,Stent In Place For 19 Days Will Rupture Heal Itself?

Injured Ureter

Stenting
The ureter has an excellent blood supply thus much more often than not it completely heals. The greater concern is the development of a narrowing (stricture) . Usually a month or so after the stent is removed an imaging study should be performed
