Once a kidney stone reaches the ureterovesical junction where the ureter drains into the bladder, patients often experience frequency, urgency, and burning with urination or dysuria. In such kind of stones a stent is placed from above by a percutaneous procedure or cystoscopically. It is called double J stenting.

Hi there. Most kidney stones less than 6mm in size can be treated conservatively. If pain, nausea and vomiting can be controlled, most of these stones will pass spontaneously. one must be well hydrated while trying to pass stone. Pain can be controlled with NSAIDs and narcotics on prescription if the pain is very distressing. the stone can be kept track of for weeks to months if there is no significant obstruction and if nausea and vomiting are tolerable and there is no active infection. Usually vu junction stones cause irritatu=ive symptoms like urgency and dysuria. The use of flexible ureteroscopy could be tried for ureteroscopic extraction of ureteric stones. Smaller than 4mm can be extracted ureteroscopically using a basket. Larger ones need fragmentation and disintegration before extraction. Ureteric stents are inserted if trauma to ureter is expected due to extensibe manipulation of the ureter. Consult an urologist for the best guidance and management. Hope this helps. Take care.
