Efficacy of Tamsulosin in the medical management of juxtavesical
Several authors have proposed the use of [alpha]-blockers to facilitate lower ureteral stone (juxtavesical tract and ureterovesical junction) passage and expulsion.[sup.1,2] Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is accepted as the first-line treatment for patients with ureteral stones; however, this approach does not seem to work efficiently when the stone size increases.

At the ureterovesical junction, 3 ureteral segments are distinguished: the juxtavesical
, intramural, and submucosal segments.
