This trial is evaluating whether Silicone (Coloplast Imajin Hydro) ureteral stent will improve 2 primary outcomes and 7 secondary outcomes in patients with Kidney Stones. Measurement will happen over the course of up to 30 days.
This trial requires 224 total participants across 2 different treatment groups
This trial involves 2 different treatments. Silicone (Coloplast Imajin Hydro) Ureteral Stent is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will be divided into 2 treatment groups. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.
"We found stent-based treatment significantly improved the patient's QOL in urinary symptoms. Results from a recent paper suggest that stent implantation may have the same favorable effect on urinary symptoms as open ureteral stenting is." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Ureteral calculi are formed in the kidneys during the time when a child is starting to urinate. As a child is learning to hold urine by themselves it is important that the ureters are clear. If the patient has a kidney stone then there is a very high chance that they will have two stones. Any pain would be caused by passing the stones out. If pain persists then a doctor should be contacted. Stones are not always dangerous. In those with small stones that are not causing any pain, some people with stones may be able to keep a small stone in their bladder. If they want to take back the stone it doesn’t have to be painless." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"It is likely that a ureteral stone is precipitated by a physiological malfunction, i.e. abnormally formed proteins that are difficult to eliminate, or abnormal metabolic processes that produce excess salts." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The most frequently encountered sign of ureteral calculi is pain; however, these are often nonspecific. Other commonly reported signs include decreased appetite, blood in the urine, nausea, and fever. Painless ureteral calculi may present with other clinical signs. Urinary frequency and straining often are the first signs of ureteral calculi. They are followed by frequency of urination of > 2 h before waking, a sudden decrease in urine volumes after waking, and/or a volume of <100 mL per voiding. A flank mass may be palpable, or the presence of pyuria may be appreciated." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"For most patients, nonsurgical approaches are normally used. A combination of antibiotics and urine prophylactic measures are effective in prevention of urinary tract infections due to the large incidence of stasis." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Between 1990 and 1995, the number of patients who had a stone for more than 1 year of the study period fell by 50% in the USA. We believe this represents a significant reduction in the number of patients getting ureteral calculi annually in the USA." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Based on the information obtained, it was found that it was a safe procedure with no complications. We believe that, in cases with chronic obstruction of the ureter, the use of this biomaterial is a suitable alternative for conservative or surgical treatments." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"In the case of ureteral stent due to ureteral obstruction, the side effects of silicone stent is a major issue when compared to other kinds of ureteral stent; however, its side effects in the case of nephrostomy is not a major issue. Silicone stent in nephrostomy tube is a good choice in case of ureteral obstruction due to malignancy or kidney transplantation." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Coloplast Imajin stent was used in our case series for treatment of ureteral obstruction. Coloplast Imajin has good efficacy in treatment of ureteral obstruction. Nevertheless, caution is needed since its efficacy in patients with urologic malformation should be assessed because silicone can be found in the urinary system of patients." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Age is one of the major factors of ureteral calculi formation. The higher the year of birth, the higher the risk of having calculus ureter." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Nephrolithiasis is a common problem that is common to all races and socioeconomic levels. Considering the risk of complications and costs of surgery, patients may want to have an alternative treatment regimen that reduces the size of the stones and decreases the possibility of recurrence. Using clinical trials to determine the most preferred treatment regimen, is the first and most important step in determining the best approach to ureteral calculi." - Anonymous Online Contributor
