Abstract INTRODUCTION: Double-J stents revolutionized the minimally invasive management of ureteral strictures, but have significant morbidity. We compare stent-related symptoms and quality of life between a conventional Double-J stent and a novel thermoexpandable metal segmental ureteral stent (Memokath) in patients with ureteral strictures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seventy patients with a conventional Double-J stent or a Memokath stent for ureteral strictures were mailed a validated ureteral stent symptom questionnaire, which is a multidimensional measure that evaluates stent-related morbidity in six sections: urinary symptoms, body pain, general health, work performance, sexual matters, and additional problems. Statistical analysis compared the differences in these parameters between the two groups. RESULTS: Forty-one patients (58.5\%) responded, 23 with a Double-J stent and 18 with a Memokath stent. A subgroup of 10 patients had both a Double-J and a Memokath stent. Nearly 70\% of patients with Double-J stents experienced urine frequency
