OBJECTIVES Irrigation during ureterorenoscopic procedures causes increased pelvic pressure (PP), which may lead to intrarenal backflow with potential harmful consequences. This study aims to investigate PP response to intraluminal administration of isoproterenol (beta-agonist; ISO) during flexible ureterorenoscopy. METHODS Twelve patients admitted for retrograde intrarenal stone surgery (RIRS) were included. Patients were randomized to (1) irrigation with saline (n=6) or (2) irrigation with… CONTINUE READING
