Dorsal approach in the surgery of kidneys and of the upper portion of the ureter

  • J. Wisniewski
  • L. Jeromin


A dorsal approach in the surgical treatment of nephrolithiasis has been evaluated and its technique, including the authors' own modification, is discussed. Late postoperative results obtained by dorsal and lumbar approaches in patients with similar indications for surgery have been compared. The follow-up period varied from several months to several years in duration. The dorsal surgical approach was preferable in cases of isolated calculi in the kidneys and upper portion of the ureter. Indications and contraindications for surgical procedures on the kidneys and the ureter with the dorsal approach are discussed.
