OBJECTIVE: Kidney stones in renal pelvis may be treated using various methods. For larger stones, percutaneous nephrolitotomy (PNL) is the first choice of option; where for smaller stones, shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) or flexible ureteroscopy (F-URS) could be more suitable options. In this article we aimed to compare the outcomes of F-URS and SWL on the treatment of renal pelvis stones <10 mm. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Files of patients treated with SWL and F-URS for renal pelvis stones <10 mm between March 2013 and May 2016 in our clinic were analyzed...
