Urinary Calculi and the Scope - Webinar
Cystic and urethral calculi are usually an indication for removal. Traditional surgery has historically been done with relatively low rates of complications, but using a scope markedly improves imaging, reduces trauma, and can improve stone removal. Techniques will be demonstrated with cases for removal using a small cystoscope and flexible urethroscope. I suggest that capability for cystoscopy should be considered a standard of practice for calculi removal.
