Flexible Ureteroscopy and Laser Dusting of 8 mm Kidney Stone

The kidney is reached using a ureteral access sheath to provide continuous access to the collecting system as several scope passages are expected. The stone is treated with the dusting technique, leaving only very small particles behind. These are naturally evacuated by the patient. Bigger fragments are retrieved with a stone basket.

Reason for Ureteroscopy:

Kidney stone on CT scan before first treatment left side two weeks previously.

Stone information:

Approximately 1240 Hounsfield units

Stone size 8 × 6 × 8 mm
