J Stent 

A ureteral stent , sometimes as well called ureteric stent , is a thin tube inserted into the ureter to prevent or treat obstruction of the urine flow from the kidney . The length of the stents used in adult patients varies between 24 and 30 cm. Additionally, stents come in differing diameters or gauges, to fit different size ureters. The stent is usually inserted with the aid of a cystoscope . One or both ends of the stent may be coiled to prevent it from moving out of place; this is called a JJ stent , double J stent or pig-tail stent .

A JJ stent is a specially designed hollow tube, made of a flexible plastic material that is placed in the ureter. The ureter is the natural tube that transmits urine from the kidney to the bladder. The length of the stents used in adult patients varies between 24 to 30 cm.

A thin, hollow tube placed inside the ureter during surgery to ensure drainage of urine from the kidney into the bladder. J shaped curls are present at both ends to hold the tube in place and prevent migration, hence the description "double J stent".
