DJ stent is a small tube that is placed in the body from the Kidney to the Urinary bladder. It is kept for about six weeks. The lower portion which is in the Urinary bladder is shaped like a usual “J” while the upper portion is like a mirror image. The shape helps in retaining the stent in the body. The entire procedure of placing Dj stent is referred as Dj stenting.Learn More
The purpose of a Dj stent is to hold the ureter open and drain urine. It usually is used temporarily, although in some cases a blockage of the ureter is managed long-term with a stent.
A Dj stent is placed if your Urologist finds that urine is not getting drained well through the ureter. This may arise by a blockage or as a reaction to surgery.
Dj stent removal is done by cystoscopy, an outpatient procedure which takes only a few minutes. During cystoscopy the Urologist places a small flexible tube through the urethra (the hole where urine exits the body). You will be asked to urinate after the procedure. Learn more.
