A urologist with a good experience and acumen in RIRS will always encourage you for this procedure owing to its high success rate.
Since it can also be done under local, spinal or general anaesthesia using flexible ureteroscopy and laser, it is ideal for patients with cardiac problems.
This non surgical non invasive urology procedure is generally used for cases that are otherwise difficult to treat, such as:
- Compromised kidney function.
- Previous failed attempts for stone removal.
- Large stones or unresponsive stones to ESWL.
- Malformations in kidney.
- Kidney passage strictures.
- Bleeding disorders.
- Obese patients or pts with immobility.
