Özet

Background and Purpose: The development of semirigid and flexible ureteroscopes has permitted easier access to calculi throughout the urinary tract. We compared the use of semirigid and flexible ureteroscopy for the management of shockwave lithotripsy-refractory, isolated renal pelvic calculi by evaluating stone-free rates, operating room times, and associated complications.
