Objectives: To calculate the frequencies of symptomatic complications of pigtail ureteral stents and todetermine the effect of stent duration on symptomatic complications.® Methodology: All stented adult patients (PTFE Coated Cook 6 Fr Double J Stent) presenting at theInstitute of Kidney Diseases Hayatabad Peshawar were evaluated by history, examination, urine analysisand cultures, X-ray KUB and ultrasound KUB.
