PURPOSE We prospectively compared the results of the Swiss LithoClast System with the holmium: yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Ho:YAG) laser for ureteral lithotripsy for management of upper ureteral stones. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty patients were randomized to two groups: LithoClast classic 2 (n = 25) and Ho:YAG laser (n = 25) between January 2005 and January 2007. Procedure selection was decided by random chit allotment. All patients who successfully had ureteral dilatation (up to 10F) were… CONTINUE READING
