How long should stent stay in kidney for kidney stones?

Until the stones

Can you please tell me about a stent put in because of kidney stones?

Relieve obstruction

Kidney_stone
This is an emergency procedure to relieve pain & back pressure from an obstructing kidney stone or prior to having stone broken up by ESWL (Electroshock wave lithotripsy) . Sometimes JJ ureteral stent helps to break up an obstructing ureteral stone. Stent can also dilate a ureter to accommodate at a later date if ureter is initially too narrow for passage of a ureteroscope.

How do they remove a stent placed after kidney stone removal surgery?

Two ways

Kidney
If the stent is left with a long "string" if intended to be short term, this can be grasped and pulled out easily. If there is no visible string, an office procedure to retrieve it with a flexible fiberoptic scope (cystoscopy) is a rapid and relatively painless method to remove the stent.

If you've not passed a kidney stone and have a double j stent what to do?

Discuss w urologist

Kidney
Stone & stent needs to be removed. JJ stents frequently breakup stones stuck in the ureter, they also relieve obstruction & help to dilate ureter facilitating subsequent passage of a ureteroscope for possible lithotripsy. Stonewill either pass on its own, or require endoscopic lithotripsy via ureteroscope, ESWL (Shockwave Lithotripsy or percutaneous lithotripsy depending upon size of kidney stone

Dr. Edward Druy answered:

I have kidney stones. Should I get a stent in the kidney or shock wave therapy?

You might need both

Nephrolithiasis
Shock wave therapy, or lithotripsy, is the primary therapy for large kidney stones that cause symptoms such as pain or recurrent infection. If stones dislodge from the kidney and migrate into the ureter, shock wave therapy is not used. Often after shockwave therapy, a stent is placed to help the passage of the residual particles from the kidney to the bladder and to prevent obstruction.
