Figure 1: Appearance of the inflamed ureteral meatus around the double-pigtail stent.


Figure 2: No ureteral inflammation is visible in contact with the suture thread.


Figure 3: Appearance of the manually sculpted tail of the pigtail suture stent (endoscopic view).


These photographs show a ureteral meatus intubated with a double-pigtail stent or a thin thread.

The double-pigtail stent's inflammation may induce bladder symptoms and pain.

The replacement of the lower part of the stent by a thread improves tolerance.

Tolerance could be further improved by smoothing the transition between stent and thread.
