After drainage of pyonephrosis and resolution of sepsis, 22 patients were treated with TPLU (Group I), and 20 patients were treated with F-URS (Group II) for stone removal.
Postoperative Findings and Complications: The mean hospital stay was 4.21.2 days in the TPLU group and 2.11.1 days in F-URS group (pless than 0.001).
F-URS and TPLU are the most common used treatment modalities for the management of proximal ureteral stones larger than 1.5 cm.
Our study showed that the stone-free rate was significantly greater in the TPLU group (100%) as compared to the F-URS (80%) group, which indicated TPLU was a perfect option for proximal ureteral stones.
The complication rate after F-URS (22%) was lower than after TPLU (35%), with no statistically significant difference.
