Improve flexible ureteroscopy technology to make stone extraction more “minimally invasive”

Recently, the Second Department of External Surgery in our hospital successfully completed a case of large intrarenal calculi with a flexible ureteroscopic lithotripsy.

Ms. Guan is 35 years old this year. She discovered that the left kidney stone has been more than 3 years old. She has been treated with traditional Chinese medicine for expelling the stone. Large, and the left waist pain phenomenon, many hospitals suggested percutaneous nephroscopic surgery or multiple stages of flexible endoscopy lithotripsy.

I learned that one-step lithotripsy with flexible endoscope is feasible for large renal calculi in our hospital, so I came to our hospital for consultation. After admission, the preoperative examination was perfected. The director of the Urology Specialized Group of the Second Department of our hospital, Chen Hongbo, performed a disposable flexible ureteroscope combined with a flexible ureteral suction sheath for lithotripsy. Stone row.

change Traditional soft endoscopes can only crush stones, and cannot take a large amount of crushed stones during surgery. For many patients with multiple intrarenal stones, only percutaneous nephroscopic surgery was originally performed, and there is one more surgical option. The urology department of the second department outside our hospital has continuously improved the flexible ureteroscope technology, making the lithotripsy more minimally invasive and more in line with the concept of rapid recovery of patients under the new situation.
