摘要

Objective: We conducted this study to determine the ideal stent length according to body height, as data are limited. Patients and Methods: A total of 408 patients undergoing ureteroscopic lithotripsy and stent insertion (22, 24 or 26 cm) were enrolled. The appropriateness of the stent length was determined according to the plain films and was further compared among patients with different body heights and stent lengths. Results: In patients <160 cm, the use of a 22-cm stent was significantly more appropriate than a 24- or 26-cm stent (86.5, 51.9 and 46.4%). In patients between 160 and 175 cm, a 22- or 24-cm stent was significantly more appropriate than a 26-cm stent (79.2, 66.7 and 46.3%), while the difference between the use of a 22- and 24-cm stent was not significant. In patients >175 cm, a 24- or 26-cm stent might be more appropriate. Conclusions: Body heights can predict the ideal stent length. Based on a Chinese population, a 22-cm stent length is more appropriate for those <175 cm. A longer, 24- or 26-cm stent may be suitable for those >175 cm.
