Improved success of antegrade ureteral catheterization via the lower pole calix using a chuang reverse curve catheter: Technical note

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Although antegrade ureteral catheterization is best approached from a middle or upper middle calix for the most favorable force vector. it is occasionally necessary to use a lower pole caliceal approach. A catheter technique is described for completing antegrade ureteral catheterization via the lower pole calix when conventional catheterguidewire combinations fail.
