Black-Star offers a unique, patented system for retrieval of a Double J stent without requiring use of a cystoscope, operating room or nursing staff. Black-Star uses an innovative magnetic system attached to its distal loop, which hangs in the bladder and facilitates smooth removal using a magnetic retrieval device.
The benefits of using the Black-Star system instead of traditional ureteral stents are numerous and include
- Improved patient outcomes
- Significant overall cost savings
- No use of operating room facilities
- Saves highly valuable nursing staff time
- No need for sterilization equipment
- Conserving the use of the OR/Cystoscope suite and healthcare team for more complex urology cases
- Less pain
- Lower infection risk
- Higher overall comfort than other stent options
