Abstract

Voiding urohydropropulsion is a nonsurgical method of removing uroliths from the urinary bladder. Any urocystolith of sufficient size to pass through the distended urethral lumen can be safely and effectively removed by this new technique. Compared to cystotomy, voiding urohydropropulsion offers several advantages: urolith removal can be performed in minutes, anesthetic period is shorter, postprocedural dysuria and hematuria are less severe, and it provides greater success for complete removal of small urocystoliths. This technique is not suitable for removal of large urocystoliths or uroliths that become lodged in the urethral lumen.
