OBJECTIVES To analyze the outcomes, predictors of success and predictors of need for hospital admission in our series of patients who underwent ureteroscopy (URS) as a major outpatient surgery (MOS) procedure. METHODS We carried out a retrospective analysis of 402 patients who had undergone semi-rigid URS for ureteral calculi as a MOS procedure in our center between 2004 and 2012. Patients with previous DJ catheter were excluded. We classified the calculi according to their location (lumbar…

Predictors of Hospitalization After Ureteroscopy Plus Elective Double-J Stent as an Outpatient Procedure
Semirigid ureteroscopy is a safe and effective treatment that is independent of intraoperative local conditions or stone size, and elective Double-J stenting avoids major complications as the first reason for hospitalization.
Feasibility And Efficiency Of Ureterorenoscopy As A Day-care Procedure For Treatment Of Ureteric Calculi
A day care ureterorenoscopy is a safe procedure in a full time day care setting, with a rapid turnover and clinically safe outcome with few and trivial complications requiring readmission.
RE: Semi-rigid ureteroscopy – Proximal versus distal ureteral stone
The author concluded that the use of smaller caliber semi‑rigid ureteroscopy combined with holmium‑yttrium‑aluminum‑garnet laser for proximal Ureteral calculi is safe, which was not proved by this study.
