Balloon Dilation for Management of Large Distal Ureteral Stones

Dr. Zhao describes a technique utilizing balloon dilation to remove distal ureteral stones intact or with minimal laser lithotripsy. Dr. Zhao highlights the use of this technique in a 61-year-old male with two stones at different locations within the right ureter. First, a 7 mm stone near the UVJ that he was able to remove completely intact, and then farther up the ureter a 13 mm stone at the iliac vessel that was broken into a couple of fragments for extraction. Dr. Zhao discusses the steps, tools and guidelines to utilizing this efficient stone extraction technique to complete the case.
