[5] In 1960s a rudimentary ureteroscope was placed into a ureter through a ureterolithotomy during open surgery (Marshall, 1964).
The user-friendly scissor style handle is easy to use and designed to keep the basket and stone within the focal range of the ureteroscope. Handle may be disconnected and reconnected with basket in place.
In terms of technique, using a rigid ureteroscope without a guide is recommended to avoid suspected tissue damage.
A semi-rigid ureteroscope was used to visualize the distal ureter, and the surgeon identified a large papillary tumor, which was biopsied using two baskets, the Segura and a 1.9 French Nitinol basket.
Holmium laser was used to incise and photocoagulate the stalk, after which it was excised using rigid biopsy forceps and delivered through the semi-rigid ureteroscope (Figure 4).
Surgical methods: After the epidural anesthesia, the patient was placed in a lithotomy position at first; a zebra urological guide-wire (Germany LAKH ST-32150) was placed in the operated ureter under the ureteroscope, the guide-wire was retained, then the ureteroscope was taken out; an F5 ureteral catheter was inserted into the ureter inversely along the guide-wire, and then the guide-wire was pulled out.
Carey and Bird (5) used a flexible ureteroscope to detect the basis of a polyp on the ureteral wall, and they treated 10 patients with ureteroscopic laser ablation.
