At least 90 percent of all ureteral calculi, which until recently required open ureterolithotomy, can today be managed successfully with endoscopic techniques. About 30 percent have to be disintegrated within the ureter. This is best achieved by ultrasonic disintergration. In 120 reno-ureteral units stones were removed by this technique with no mortality, a low morbidity and a success rate of over 90 percent. Third-generation ureteroscopes have significantly improved the success rate and reduced the operating time. Ultrasonic disintegration within the ureter can be considered as a safe and sufficient procedure.
