|OBJECTIVE: We validated the Japanese version of the ureteral stent symptom questionnaire in patients with an indwelling ureteric stent. METHODS: The English version of the ureteral stent symptom questionnaire was translated into Japanese using a multistep process by three urologists and two independent translators. A total of 70 patients with indwelling ureteral stents completed the Japanese ureteral stent symptom questionnaire, as well as validated instruments, namely, the International Prostate Symptom Score or Overactive Bladder Symptom Score and the EuroQoL 5-dimension questionnaires. Patients completed questionnaires at 2 weeks after stent insertion and 4 weeks after stent removal. The second group included 87 healthy individuals who agreed to complete the questionnaires. .
