Abstract

Beside the widely used methods (including ESWL, PCNL, URS, laparoscopy and retroperitoneoscopy) the importance of percutaneous ureterolithotomy (PCUL) is emphasized. 35 cases of PCUL are presented. The indication of nephroscopic ureterolithotomy and laparoscopic retroperitoneal ureterolithotomy is generally the same, but the PCUL can be used in cases of extended retroperitoneal fibrosis or in patients who are not candidate for general anaesthesia. The age of treated patients ranged between 23 and 62 years, their stones were located on either side, in one patient there were two stones in different location in one sided ureter. The largest diameter of stone removed by PCUL was 17 mm. After having performed the PCUL double-J stent of ureteric catheter was left in the operated ureter and a drainage tube in the retroperitoneum. The procedure can be performed without any early or late complication. The method is suggested in patients with large (more than 10 mm in diameter), hard stones, which are impacted in the middle part of the ureter and when other therapeutic approaches are not possible. This safe intervention in selected patients is more preferable than open surgery and it is a method of choice among other endoscopic procedures.
