1 doctor weighed in:

My son has a 4mm kidney stone. He is paralyzed from the waist down and must cath to urinate. Will a 4mm stone pass thru a 16french catheter?

In brief: Stone

The question is really not weather 4 mm stone will pass out through his urinary catheter whether it will pass from his kidney down the ureter into his bladder.
