Advances in ureteral stent design and materials

Advances in ureteral stent design and materials
Advances in ureteral stent design and materials
Purpose of Review. There are three technological parameters that play a key role on the performance of an ideal stent. These are its material, design and surface coating. This article highlights some fundamental developments that took place in these three areas of stent’s technology, in order to contribute to the identification of an ideal stent.

Recent Findings. In addition to technological developments concerning stent’s material, design and surface coating, the flow dynamic performance of stents has recently attracted increasing attention. Notably, it has been postulated that the local flow field
in a stent is correlated with the deposition of crystals and microorganisms. These findings could potentially revolutionise future
stent’s designs, and complement developments made on materials and coatings.

Summary. The most relevant changes in materials, designs and surface coatings of ureteric stents are reviewed in this article.
These are described in the context of a specific cause of stent’s failure they aim to address, with a particular focus on encrustation
and biofilm formation.

Abstract

Purpose of Review. There are three technological parameters that play a key role on the performance of an ideal stent. These are its material, design and surface coating. This article highlights some fundamental developments that took place in these three areas of stent’s technology, in order to contribute to the identification of an ideal stent.

Recent Findings. In addition to technological developments concerning stent’s material, design and surface coating, the flow dynamic performance of stents has recently attracted increasing attention. Notably, it has been postulated that the local flow field
in a stent is correlated with the deposition of crystals and microorganisms. These findings could potentially revolutionise future
stent’s designs, and complement developments made on materials and coatings.

Summary. The most relevant changes in materials, designs and surface coatings of ureteric stents are reviewed in this article.
These are described in the context of a specific cause of stent’s failure they aim to address, with a particular focus on encrustation
and biofilm formation.
