PURPOSE We evaluated the cost-effectiveness of anti-retropulsion devices used during ureteroscopic lithotripsy. MATERIALS AND METHODS A decision analysis model was constructed to compare the cost-effectiveness of ureteroscopic lithotripsy with vs without an anti-retropulsion device. The risk of stone retropulsion was determined from published data in the English language literature. Expected value calculations were used to determine whether the additional cost of a device would be cost… CONTINUE READING
