The study to the Magnetic Black-Star®
Ureteral stents for children
A study by the renowned urologist Dr. Thomas Blanc shows the clinical benefits of Magnetic Black-Star®.
Why is stent removal an increased risk when performed in children?
In addition to stent placement, stent removal in children poses challenges for urologists. In this case, the stent must be removed under general anesthesia by cystoscopy. This is time-consuming and costly. For children, the repeated surgical experience is emotionally stressful and the repeated general anesthesia carries the neurotoxicity risks described in the technical literature.
The solution? – The Magnetic Black-Star®
“Our study shows that the concept of a magnetic ureteral stent in children is successful and offers great advantages for patients, families and medical institutions”.
