Intervention Details:
    Device: Ureteral Stent
    Ureteral stents are not investigatory but rather part of standard of care. In this study, we were interested in having patients fill out pre and post-operative questionnaires so that we could compare their symptoms with the length of their ureter and the stent placed.
Detailed Description:

Patients undergoing electro shock wave for treatment of kidney stones are randomized to long or short stent length after signing an informed consent prior to their surgery. They keep a pain diary and medication diary for a two week period after the stent is placed. These are turned in at the two week post-op visit. Patients also complete a quality of life and urinary symptom score questionnaire pre and post operatively.
