Never leave a stent behind
Our Ureteral Stent Tracker, developed in partnership with Boston Scientific, aims to address the problem of retained and encrusted ureteral stents by making it easy to document placed stents and keep track of them by making their existence visible to the whole care team, including the patient.
Increase Quality of Care
A simple yet robust stent tracking system increases the effectiveness of clinical care and thus the quality of care.
Implementing a reliable system and standardized process reduces potential complications and consequences associated with forgotten stents.
Improve Workflow Efficiency
The Ureteral Stent Tracker is easy to use for you and your staff. Feel confident about keeping track of indwelling stents and delivering the best care.
