fURS Tips and tricks

Dear All,

fURS has come to stay and it may even replace PCNL in majority of instances in near future. Though Miniaturisation has occurred in PCNL Technology, the same is effectively occurring in fURS as well.

This article by Bhaskar Somani and Olivier Traxer is a must read and understood by all trainees in the group as it will improve your understanding as regards fURS.


I am not making any additional comments on the article but hopefully our many experts performing fURS in our group may be able to add on to the article with their personal experience.

With warm regards,

    Thanks a lot Sir

    A wonderful article
    I have a thought about the use of safety wire for RIRS. I feel we must use it regularly, specially when treating upper ureteric calculi. 
    The distinct advantages are: 1. Ureter remains straight so in & out easy and non-traumatic 2. System drains better. Drainage also happens along the wire. 3. Reduced fluoroscopy as wire can guide position of the scope 4. Can assess ureter while removing access sheath. this is very important as otherwise we would miss ureteric injury due to access sheath or dilatation. 5. Placement of DJ easy
    6. Surely it is improves safety
