Limitations of current ureteroscope illumination configurations include presence of shadows and hot spots in images, further degraded by stone debris during laser lithotripsy, which may result in a decrease in stone ablation efficiency, increase in surgical operation time, and potential collateral tissue trauma. Previous studies have reported accidental ureteral tissue perforation from Nitinol stone basket wires during Holmium laser lithotripsy, due in part to poor visibility. Although saline… CONTINUE READING
