Ureteroscopic Management of Renal Stones
Ureteroscopy has been extremely successful in the treatment of ureteral calculi. Distal ureteral stones have been treated with a wide variety of ureteroscopes and endoscopic lithotriptors. Recent development of small-diameter rigid and flexible endoscopes and more effective lithotriptors has allowed extension of these same techniques into the mid- and proximal ureter with excellent results. Application of the techniques to the renal pelvis and intrarenal collecting system is a reasonable next step.
