Abstract: A total of 36 patients with bladder stones underwent percutaneous suprapubic cystolithotripsy. The successful rate was 89%. There were 11% failures due to nonfragmentation of the stones by the ultrasound probe. According to the presence of associated diseases 3 groups of patients were established. Two groups underwent concomitant treatments for benign prostatic hyperplasia and urethral stricture. No complications occurred even in patients with concomitant treatment. There was no statistically significant difference when these groups were compared (p >0.05). Fluoroscopy was not necessary during that procedure. Since the technique is simple, safe and effective, it represents an alternative in the management of bladder stones.
