Understanding Cystoscopy with DJ Stenting:

Cystoscopy with DJ (double-J) stenting is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to diagnose and treat various urinary tract conditions, such as kidney stones, ureteral strictures, or ureteropelvic junction obstruction. This procedure involves the insertion of a flexible tube (cystoscope) through the urethra into the bladder, followed by the placement of a ureteral stent to promote urinary drainage and relieve obstruction.

Indications for Surgery:

Cystoscopy with DJ stenting may be recommended for patients with the following conditions:

  • Kidney Stones: Stones that are causing obstruction or pain in the urinary tract, particularly in the ureter.
  • Ureteral Strictures: Narrowing of the ureter due to scarring, inflammation, or previous surgical procedures.
  • Ureteropelvic Junction (UPJ) Obstruction: Blockage at the junction where the ureter connects to the kidney, impeding urine flow.

The Surgical Procedure:

At Neo TrueNorth, cystoscopy with DJ stenting procedures are performed by our skilled urologists with a focus on patient comfort and safety:

  • Anesthesia: Local anesthesia or sedation may be administered to ensure patient comfort during the procedure.
  • Cystoscopy: A cystoscope is inserted through the urethra into the bladder to visualize the urinary tract structures, including the ureteral openings.
  • DJ Stent Placement: A flexible ureteral stent with double-J configuration is advanced through the cystoscope and into the ureter to bypass obstructions and promote urine flow.
  • Confirmation: The correct positioning of the stent is confirmed using imaging techniques such as fluoroscopy or ultrasound.
  • Closure: Once the stent is in place, the cystoscope is removed, and the procedure site is typically left without the need for sutures.

Postoperative Care:

Following cystoscopy with DJ stenting, patients receive comprehensive postoperative care and support:

  • Pain Management: Administration of pain medications to manage postoperative discomfort and promote comfort during the recovery period.
  • Stent Care: Instructions on stent care, including maintaining adequate hydration, monitoring urine output, and recognizing signs of stent-related complications.
  • Follow-Up: Regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor stent function, assess symptoms, and determine the need for stent removal.
