Olympus LithoStent™ ureteral stents are unsurpassed in preventing ureteral strictures and urinomas. Their unique grooved design creates a track between the kidney and bladder, enhancing the flow of urine and stone fragments. Made of Tecoflex® thermosensitive material, these stents remain firm during placement and soften at body temperature for increased patient comfort. Each stent is supplied with an attached braided nylon tether and one RAMROD™ metal tip push catheter.
- Advanced Tecoflex construction: This unique design delivers a stent that is firm during placement for easy passage then softens at body temperature for increased patient comfort.
- Grooved design: Outside grooves accommodate urine and stone particles for excellent flow.
- Kink-resistant: The spiral drainage hole design resists kinking and buckling.
- Ultra-slippery coating: The hydrophilic coating on the stent’s surface ensures easy insertion and removal.
- Radiopaque filler: The filler provides clear fluoroscopic visualization.
