Abstract

Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy has proved to be an effective method of treating urinary calculi. A total of 110 patients underwent 244 treatments with extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy for urinary calculi from May 1987 to July 1987. Analysis of the first 110 patients shows 80 renal and 30 ureteral stones. The overall(complete and incomplete) success rate was 93.6%, and low morbidity and no mortality were proved. Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy is the preferred form of management for renal and ureteral stone less than 2cm in diameter.
