  • passage in 29–98% of stones of < 5 mm diameter above the iliac vessels, and 71–98% of stones of < 5 mm diameter below the iliac vessels. For stones of 5–10 mm diameter, spontaneous passage occurred in 10–53% of proximal calculi and 25–53% of distal calculi. In a multivariate analysis of risk factors associated with spontaneous ureteric stone passage, Miller and Kane [2] found that smaller, more distal stones on the right side were more likely to spontaneously pass and require fewer surgical… CONTINUE READING
