Which is the best treatment for pediatric upper urinary tract stones?

Researchers from Sichuan University systematically reviewed existing literature to evaluate the efficacy and safety of extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy, and retrograde intrarenal surgery, in the management of pediatric upper urinary tract stones. 

Optimizing anesthesia and combining respiratory support for retrograde intrarenal surgery

Movement of stones within the operative field during retrograde intrarenal surgery is one of the greatest challenges of this type of urological surgery. In a pilot study, researchers based in Russia and the US collaborated to develop a novel general anesthesia technique to combat this surgical challenge. 


Aims and scope

BMC Urology is an open access journal publishing original peer-reviewed research articles in all aspects of the prevention, diagnosis and management of urological disorders, as well as related molecular genetics, pathophysiology, and epidemiology.
