Primary ureteroscopy for nephrolithiasis is often completed without prior ureteral stenting. However, failure can occur due to inability to access the stone, requiring ureteral stenting for passive dilation and a second procedure. This typically results in increased morbidity due to a prolonged period of ureteral stenting and subsequent stent related symptoms. Patient counseling preoperatively is important to discuss the risk of failure.

Condition where a primary dysfunction of either heart or kidney results in failure of the other organ (e.g., HEART FAILURE with worsening RENAL INSUFFICIENCY).
Transcription factors whose primary function is to regulate the rate in which RNA is transcribed.
These growth factors comprise a family of hematopoietic regulators with biological specificities defined by their ability to support proliferation and differentiation of blood cells of different lineages. ERYTHROPOIETIN and the COLONY-STIMULATING FACTORS belong to this family. Some of these factors have been studied and used in the treatment of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia, myelodysplastic syndromes, and bone marrow failure syndromes.
