Abstract

Although extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) and ureteroscopic stone manipulation (URS) have become routine procedures in the treatment of urolithiasis, the treatment of ureteral stones is still controversial. In an attempt to improve our results, we investigated the results of 1350 cases treated by ESWL and URS in our hospital.
