Catheters, Urinary, Ureteral, Dilatation
Definition : Ureteral catheters designed for elimination of areas of narrowing (i.e., strictures) in the ureters, thereby increasing the lumen. These catheters typically consist of a flexible plastic tube with a special tip (e.g., olive tip); 7 Fr catheters including hydraulic balloons inflated from 12 to 26 Fr are also used.
