A prospective, multi-center, non-randomized trial to demonstrate safety and device performance of the ADVA-Tec Uriprene® Degradable Temporary Ureteral Stent.

Official Title

URIPRENE: Clinical Study to Evaluate the Safety and Device Performance of the ADVA-Tec Uriprene® Degradable Temporary Ureteral Stent Following Uncomplicated Ureteroscopy


A prospective, multi-center, non-randomized trial to demonstrate safety and device performance of the ADVA-Tec Uriprene® Degradable Temporary Ureteral Stent. The study is intended to assess the safety and efficacy of the Uriprene® Stent by assessing adequate intervention-free drainage during use and the time to complete degradation or the passage of stent fragments/segments from the urinary system by radiological assessment.

Open to people ages 21-80

  1. Subjects who are >21, <80 years of age; inclusive of males and females.
  2. Subjects with unilateral ureteral or renal stones who have undergone a successful, uncomplicated ureteroscopy (UURS).
  3. Subjects with asymptomatic, contralateral renal stones in sizes <4mm WHICH ARE NOT IN THE RENAL PELVIS OR URETER and who have had uncomplicated ureteroscopy (UURS) can be included. If, during the course of treatment of the target ureter with the Uriprene stent the patient's asymptomatic stone becomes symptomatic and requires treatment, the patient can only be managed with standard of care treatment including the use of an approved ureteral stent, if necessary.
  4. Subjects with a height and body size able to accommodate a 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, or 30 mm long ureteral stent, as judged by the Investigator.
  5. Subjects with the ability to understand the requirements of the study, who have provided written informed consent, and are willing to undergo all follow-up assessments according to the specified schedule.

  4. Presence of extrinsic compression of the ureter.
  5. Presence of ureteral blockage or stricture.
  6. Bladder outlet obstruction or neurogenic bladder.
  7. Subjects with known/diagnosed overactive bladder (OAB).
  8. Subjects with known/diagnosed urge urinary incontinence (UUI).
  9. Subjects with a known, active upper or lower urinary tract infection at the time of stent insertion.

    (anti- platelet agents are allowed).

    17. Contrast allergy that cannot be adequately pre-treated. 18. Subject has known severe psychiatric disorder, substance abuse, or other reason for

    being unable to follow trial follow-up instructions or unable to reliably complete patient questionnaires.

    19. Any condition, in the opinion of the investigator, that would deem a subject as
