|Title:||LUMBAR URETERAL STONES - WHICH IS THE BEST TREATMENT|
|Abstract:||We reviewed retrospectively 145 patients presenting ureteral calculi above the iliac crest. According to the treatment three groups were established. Group 1 was represented by 24 patients submitted to posterior ureterolithotomy; group 2, 100 patients treated by endourologic procedures; and group 3, 21 patients treated by extracorporeal shock-wave lithotrispy (ESWL). Success rate considered as complete removal of all calculous material was 100 percent in the posterior ureterolithotomy group, 92 percent in the endourologic group, and 94.7 percent in the ESWL group. Hospitalization, anesthesia, and complication rates were minimal in patients submitted to ESWL. One may conclude that ESWL is the treatment of choice for lumbar ureteric calculi.|
