Abstract: Objective To investigate the application effect of stone basket in ureteroscopic holmium laser lithotripsy for treatment of upper ureteral calculi. Methods The clinical data of 96 patients with upper ureteral calculi were retrospectively analyzed, all patients underwent ureteroscopic holmium laser lithotripsy. Forty-eight cases used the stone basket in the operation process (observation group), and 48 cases did not use the stone basket in the operation process (control group). The operation time, length of stay, success rate of lithotripsy, stone residual rate and incidence of postoperative complication were compared between 2 groups. Results The patients of 2 groups successfully completed surgery. There were no statistical differences in operation time, length of stay and incidence of postoperative complication between 2 groups (P>0.05). The success rate of lithotripsy in observation group was significantly higher than that in control group: 97.92% (47/48) vs. 75.00% (36/48), and the stone residual rate was significantly lower than that in control group:4.17%(2/48) vs. 18.75%(9/48), and there were statistical differences (P<0.05). Conclusions The stone basket in ureteroscopic holmium laser lithotripsy for treatment of upper ureteral calculi can thoroughly remove stones. It reduces the incidence of residual stones, does not affect the safety of the operation, and has good clinical value.
