Indwelling double 'J' ureteral stent has become a useful adjunct to the urologic armamentarium. We used these stent in 25 cases: as adjunct to upper tract reconstructive surgery in 17, calculous surgery when complicated or associated with anuria in 4, and in treatment of persistent urinary fistula in postoperative phase in 4 cases. When used as adjunct to open procedure stents frequently resulted in markedly reduced postoperative urinary drainage and thus in shorter hospital stay. Two of 4 urinary fistulae healed after the use of the stent. Mild to moderate irritative symptoms were noted in 3 cases. Failure to insert, passage into a wrong plane, obstruction, downward migration, and urinary tract infection were the problems and complications observed with the use of these stents.
