Abstract

Transurethral ultrasonic fragmentation of stones allows successful endoscopic removal of upper urinary calculi that otherwise would be considered too large to extract. We successfully extracted endoscopically 2 large renal pelvic and 5 large ureteral stones using transurethral ureteropyeloscopy and ultrasonic lithotripsy. The stone is visualized first with… (More)
