Ureteral Stent Tracker from Visible Health
We all know the saying “never leave your friends behind”. In the world of urology, ureteral stents are considered friends because they help clinicians and patients get through some tough times when it comes to ureteral obstruction. The problem is that 13% of the time, these stents are left behind or forgotten and subsequently removed later than the 6 month intended maximal removal window (Tech Urol. 2000 Sep;6(3):189-92.). At 6 months, 76% of stents have become encrusted, which leads to higher risk of infection and often times requires additional, more complicated procedures to remove the stent (Urology. 2003 Oct;62(4):622-6.).
Never leave a stent behind
Traditionally, clinicians have used log books, stickers, note cards, and other means for tracking stent cases which, when done rigorously, can be very effective in minimizing the occurrences of forgotten stents. For those that may be a bit less organized and are looking for simple tool that leverages mobile devices, bar coding, and the web, check out our new Ureteral Stent Tracker solution. We’ve spent a considerable amount of time designing a system that focuses on ease of use, simplicity, reliability, and security.
- Quickly enter patient info or take a picture of face sheet
- Scan the bar code on Boston Scientific ureteral stents to quickly capture stent information
- Monitor status of active stent cases through a personal or practice-level dashboard
- Mobile app can be used in combination with our web portal to accommodate needs of support staff
- HIPAA compliant solution
Simple to use mobile app for quickly capturing stent placement at point-of-care.

Scan Boston Scientific stent details with the camera or enter stent information manually.
Keep track of indwelling and overdue stents through the Clinical Workspace dashboard, on mobile or the web.
