Abstract

In the last few years, several new techniques became suitable for the treatment of ureteral stones, increasing the methods already available. The indications for each treatment are based on a number of parameters: size and hardness of the stone; position of the stone in the ureter; presence of dilation or a non-functioning kidney; duration of stone in position. In order to assess which treatment is most appropriate for each stone, we reviewed our experience from January, 1985 until March, 1988.
