ESWL (Shock Wave Lithotripsy)

ESWL stands for Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy. Water waves are used to fracture stones in the urinary tract. A ureteral stent is a hollow plastic tube that runs between the kidney and bladder. It prevents stone fragments from blocking the ureter. Not all patients who undergo ESWL will have a stent placed. The decision to place a stent is determined by your urologist at the time of surgery.
