Editorial comment on: endoluminal isoproterenol irrigation decreases renal pelvic pressure during flexible ureterorenoscopy: a clinical randomized, controlled study.


Keeping pressures down also minimizes fluid absorption, which below 30 mm Hg is typically 1 mL of irrigation fluid per minute of ureterorenoscopy time [5]. In essence, pressure is inversely proportional to irrigation flow rate and instrumentation may either assist or interfere with fluid flow and thus alter pressure. The present work demonstrates another… (More)
