Efficacy and safety of various surgical treatments for proximal ureteral stone ≥10mm: A systematic review and network meta-analysis.

Int Braz J Urol 2020 May 18;46. Epub 2020 May 18.

Department of Urology, The Second Hospital of Hebei Medical University, Shijiazhuang, China.

Purpose: Various surgical options are available for large proximal ureteral stones, such as extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), ureteroscopic lithotripsy (URSL), percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) and laparoscopic ureterolithotomy (LU). However, the best option remains controversial. Therefore, we conducted a network meta-analysis comparing various surgical treatments for proximal ureteral stones ≥10mm to address current research deficiencies. Read More

Laparoscopic ureterolithotomy, flexible ureteroscopic lithotripsy and percutaneous nephrolithotomy for treatment of upper urinary calculi in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease.

Clin Exp Nephrol 2020 May 8. Epub 2020 May 8.

Department of Urology, the First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University, Jixi Road #218, Hefei, Anhui, 230022, P.R. China.

The role of robotic surgery in the management of renal tract calculi.

Transl Androl Urol 2019 Sep;8(Suppl 4):S457-S460

Department of Urology, Freeman Hospital, Newcastle, UK.

The role of robotic assisted surgery in contemporary urolithiasis management is in its infancy. The mainstay in the management of renal tract calculi remains ureterorenoscopy (URS), extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) and percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). However, in rare clinical circumstances, such as large impacted pelvic and ureteric calculi, endo-urological techniques may not be adequate. Read More

JSLS 2019 Apr-Jun;23(2)

Department of Urology, School of Medicine, Kyungpook National University, Kyungpook National University Hospital, Daegu, South Korea.

Background And Objectives: The purpose of this study was to compare two methods (transperitoneal laparoscopic ureterolithotomy [TLU] and a combination of ureteroscopic lithotripsy [UL] with retrograde intrarenal surgery [RIRS]) designed for the treatment of large proximal ureteral calculi so that their associated complications and stone-free rates could be assessed.

Minimal access surgery in the management of pediatric urolithiasis.

Transl Pediatr 2016 Oct;5(4):262-265

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Hospital Lenval, Nice, France.

Background: In contrast to adult patients, a relatively large number of open surgical procedures are still needed in the treatment of urolithiasis in children. Since almost all open surgical techniques may be reproduced by minimal access surgery (MAS), there is a rationale to apply the latter in the management of pediatric urolithiasis. Our study aimed to assess the feasibility and outcome of MAS in the treatment of pediatric urinary calculi. Read More

The future of ureteroscopy.

Minerva Urol Nefrol 2016 Dec 19;68(6):592-597. Epub 2016 Oct 19.

Department of Urologic Sciences, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada -

Open ureterolithotomy and pyelolithotomy used to be first line therapy for treating kidney and ureteral stones. With the advent of shockwave lithotripsy, open stone surgery became less prevalent, but once ureteroscopy became more prevalent, open stone surgery became all but extinct. Advances in smaller, more flexible endoscopes and improvements in intracorporeal lithotripters, ureteroscopy has become a mainstay of therapy for kidney stones. Read More
