Background and Purpose: Intracorporeal lithotripsy is an important modality used for stone pulverization. To improve the pulverization properties of intracorporeal lithotriptors, a novel intracorporeal “spearheaded lithotriptor” was designed by our institute. It was compared in vitro with the...
Purpose: An attempt has been made to prospectively compare the results of two laparoscopic pyeloplasties: Dismembered Anderson-Hynes (A-H) plasty and nondismembered Y-V plasty. Complications following the procedures have been studied as well. Patients and Methods: Fifty patients with primary...
