The Study of whether or not Ureteral Stent Length affects patient comfort after electro-shock wave treatment for kidney stones.
Condition or disease
Device: Ureteral Stent
Patients undergoing electro shock wave for treatment of kidney stones are randomized to long or short stent length after signing an informed consent prior to their surgery. They keep a pain diary and medication diary for a two week period after the stent is placed. These are turned in at the two week post-op visit. Patients also complete a quality of life and urinary symptom score questionnaire pre and post operatively.
Ureteral stents are not investigatory but rather part of standard of care. In this study, we were interested in having patients fill out pre and post-operative questionnaires so that we could compare their symptoms with the length of their ureter and the stent placed.
