Abstract

We report on 11 patients in whom fragments of calculi were extruded into the perinephric or periureteric tissues at the time of endourologic stone surgery. All patients have been managed conservatively. In 2 patients ureteric strictures developed, but these were probably secondary to an electrical injury as a result of electrohydraulic lithopaxy. The remaining 9 patients have not experienced serious sequelae as a result of the calculus extrusion.
