ureterolithotomy

Surgical removal of a stone from the URETER. Stones may be removed by open operation or by crushing them so that the gravel may be washed out. The commonest method, however, is by shock wave LITHOTRIPSY.

Materials and Methods: Since the inception of urologic laparoscopy in the mid-1990s, 25 ureterolithotomy, four pyelolithotomy, seven pyeloplasty with renal pelvic stone removal, and two laparoscopic nephrolithotomies for calyceal diverticular stones have been performed at our institution.
Results: In the ureterolithotomy group, 75% of the stones are in the proximal ureter or at the ureteropelvic junction.
Experience and learning curve of retroperitoneal laparoscopic ureterolithotomy for upper ureteral calculi.
We report our experience of laparoscopic retroperitoneal ureterolithotomy with renal stone extraction using a stone basket under flexible ureteroscopy through a laparoscopic port and a ureterotomy site in patients with both large upper ureteral stone and small renal stones.
Between January 2009 and February 2012, we performed retroperitoneoscopic ureterolithotomy in 40 patients who had either large or impacted stones in the upper ureter and in whom SWL failed.

5%) required open ureterolithotomy because of a fixed angulation above the calculus that precluded the direct identification of the stone using an antegrade percutaneous approach.
Laparoscopic ureterolithotomy has a high success rate in patients with a large stone burden, and complete clearance can be achieved in a single session, similar to PCNL.
Various endourological treatment modalities, such as extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), laparoscopic ureterolithotomy and percutaneous nephrolithotomy, are available.
2) Various treatment modalities have been proposed in literature for ureteral calculi including shock wave lithotripsy (SWL), percutaneous removal, ureteroscopic lithotripsy (URSL), retro-peritoneoscopic ureterolithotomy, laparoscopic ureterolithotomy, and classical open ureterolithotomy.
2) single-port laparoscopic procedures such as donor nephrectomy, (3) pyeloplasty, (4) and ureterolithotomy (2) have been performed.
