PURPOSE: To evaluate the influence of overnight ureteral catheterization and determine if routine long-term post-stenting can be avoided in flexible ureterorenoscopy (fURS) procedure for kidney stone. METHODS: Three hundred ninety-three patients who underwent single fURS for kidney stone between January 2013 and June 2016 at a single institute were retrospectively analyzed. The stone-free (SF) and perioperative complication rates in patients with routine long-term post-stenting after fURS (long-term stent group) were compared with those of patients with overnight ureteral catheterization (short-term stent group)...

BACKGROUND: To observe the efficacy of self-help position therapy (SHPT) after holmium laser lithotripsy via flexible ureteroscopy (FURS). METHODS: From January 2010 to November 2015, 736 nephrolithiasis patients who had received FURS lithotripsy were analyzed retrospectively. In position group, 220 cases accepted SHPT after lithotripsies, and 428 cases as control, coming from another independent inpatient area in the same center. The stone-free status (SFS) between two groups were compared at the 2nd, 4th and 12th week ends by X-ray examinations...

OBJECTIVE: The increasing number of flexible ureteroscopy (fURS) procedures, the fragility of devices and their growing repair costs represent a substantial burden for urological departments worldwide. No risk factors of flexible ureteroscope damage have been identified so far. The objective of this study was to investigate the impact of infundibulopelvic angle (IPA) on device damage and on other intra- and postoperative factors such as length of hospital stay (LOS), surgical complications, stone-free rate (SFR), operation and fluoroscopy time...

INTRODUCTION: Advances in flexible ureteroscope design and accessory instrumentation have allowed for more challenging cases to be treated ureteroscopically. Here we evaluate our experience with ureteroscopy for the management of large renal calculi (≥ 2cm) and provide a concise review of recent reports.. METHODS: A retrospective review was undertaken of all ureteroscopy cases between 2004 and 2014 performed by the endourologic team at a single academic tertiary care institution...

BACKGROUND: the optimal management of lower calyceal stones is still controversial, because no single method is suitable for the removal of all lower calyceal stones. Minimally invasive procedures such as extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) and flexible ureteroscopy (fURS) are the therapeutic methods for lower calyceal stones. The aim of this study was to identify the optimal management of 10-20 mm lower pole stones. METHODS: a meta-analysis of cohort studies published before July 2016 was performed from Medline and Cochrane databases...

OBJECTIVES: Laser lithotripsy, often used during ureteronephroscopy (URNS), requires the Ho:YAG optical fiber transmit energy via total internal reflection (TIR). In critical lower pole deflections, energy may refract into the cladding causing fiber failure and scope damage. New optical fiber technology aims to have increased tolerance for high degrees of flexion. We compared two brands of laser fibers with sub-300 micron cores (Innova Quartz, Boston Flexiva) to determine failure rates and scope repair costs...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the association of clinical factors on outcomes in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) undergoing ureteroscopy. Immobility, recurrent urinary tract infection, and lower urinary tract dysfunction contribute to renal stone formation in patients with SCI. Ureteroscopy is a commonly utilized treatment modality; however, surgical complication rates and outcomes have been poorly defined. Evidence guiding safe and effective treatment of stones in this cohort remains scarce...

PURPOSE: To evaluate and compare flexible ureteroscopy (f-URS) and mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy (mPNL) for 20-30 mm renal stones in obese patients regarding efficacy and safety. METHODS: Between May 2011 and June 2017, 254 obese patients who had 20-30 mm kidney stone were consecutively included in the study; 106 patients underwent mPNL and 148 underwent f-URS by the same surgeon. The following parameters were retrospectively assessed: patient and stone characteristics, surgical details, perioperative outcomes, and stone-free rates (SFR)...

Objective: To investigate application value of narrow-band imaging (NBI) flexible ureteroscopy in the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of upper urinary tract transitional carcinomas (UTUC). Methods: From June 2015 to June 2017, 16 patients of UTUC were treated by flexible ureteroscopy with white light (WLI) and NBI at Department of Urology, Peking University Third Hospital , including 10 females and 6 males. The age of patients ranged from 43 to 84 years (average 68.9 years). There were 54 cases, including 16 cases with first-suspicion of cancer, and 38 cases with known of UTUC as follow-up...

INTRODUCTION: Ureteral access sheaths (UAS) facilitate flexible ureteroscopy in the treatment of urolithiasis. The physical properties of UAS vary by manufacturer and model. We compared three new UAS: Glideway (GW, Terumo, 11/13Fr, 12/14Fr), Pathway (PW, Terumo 12/14F) and Navigator HD (NHD, Boston Scientific, 11/13Fr, 12/14Fr) in the domains of safety characteristics, positioning characteristics, lubricity and radioopacity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In vitro testing of the three UAS included safety testing-tip perforation force, sheath edge deformation and dilator extraction forces...

Allograft lithiasis is a rare urologic complication of renal transplantation (RT). Our aim is to present our experience with minimally invasive surgical treatment of allograft lithiasis in our series of live-donor renal transplant recipients. In a retrospective analysis of 3758 consecutive live-donor RTs performed in our center between November 2009 and January 2017, the results of minimally invasive surgery for the treatment of renal graft lithiasis diagnosed at follow-up were evaluated. Twenty-two (0.58%) patients underwent minimally invasive surgery for renal graft lithiasis...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to investigate the effects of flexible ureteroscopy (F-URS) on renal blood flow using renal Doppler ultrasound (US). MATERIALS AND METHOD: Patients undergoing F-URS were scheduled for Doppler US preoperatively and postoperatively. Peak systolic velocity (PSV), end-diastolic velocity (EDV), resistive index (RI) and pulsatility index (PI) were reported. Technical details, operation time, stone characteristics and complications were recorded...

BACKGROUND: Treatment with the combination of ureteroscopy and thulium laser ablation may provide an alternative to radical nephroureterectomy (RNU) for patients with upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of this technique. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of the data for patients who were treated surgically for upper tract urothelial carcinoma in a single center. It included 32 patients treated by endoscopic thulium laser resection and 107 patients treated by radical nephroureterectomy (RNU)...

This study aimed to develop a prediction model for the operative time of flexible ureteroscopy (fURS) for renal stones. We retrospectively evaluated patients with renal stones who had been treated successfully and had stone-free status determined by non-contrast computed tomography (NCCT) 3 months after fURS and holmium laser lithotripsy between December 2009 and September 2014 at a single institute. Correlations between possible factors and the operative time were analyzed using Spearman's correlation coefficients and a multivariate linear regression model...

RATIONALE: Spontaneous renal rupture is rupture of the renal parenchyma, collecting system, or renal blood vessel, which often occurs in pathological kidney and is clinically less common. Postoperative long-term renal rupture is rarely reported in flexible ureteroscopy treatment of calculus in the upper urinary tract. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 58-year-old man complained of right lower abdominal pain with hematuria for 3 hours after flexible ureteroscopy, combined with holmium laser lithotripsy of right renal calculi was performed 1 month ago...
