We reviewed our experience with ESWL in the treatment of 401 patients with ureteral stones in order to evaluate if a higher disintegration and clearance rates could be achieved without prior manipulation of ureteral calculi, i.e., ESWL used as in situ monotherapy. The global stone free rate were 83%, 85% and 91% at 15 days, 1 month and 3 months after ESWL.
We also analyzed the results according to the efficiency quotient (EQ).
