AbstractExtracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) for treatment of ureteral calculi has gained wide popularity because of its non-invasive and ambulatory nature. The success rate using the Dornier MFL 5000 is about 77%, but retreatment is often required and stone clearance is gradual. Ureteroscopic lithotripsy (URSL) used to be performed as an in-patient procedure. With the introduction of Holmium laser and establishment of day surgery service, out-patient URSL carries a success rate of 93% and offers immediate stone clearance. It is an attractive alternative for low surgical risk patients as a primary treatment modality.
