A ureteral stent is a soft tube about 10 - 12 inches long and about as big around as a coffee swizzle stick. It is placed in the ureter, which is the muscular tube that drains urine from the kidney to the bladder. One end of the tube sits inside the kidney, and one end sits in the bladder. The purpose of a stent is to hold the ureter open and maintain drainage of urine. It usually is used temporarily, although in some cases a blockage of the ureter is managed long-term with a stent
