Dr. A. Arunagiri

Abstract :

 A prospective study was conducted at Government Villupuram Medical College and Hospital over a period of 1 year from January 2016 to December 2016. Out of the total of 100 patients with renal stone disease 50 cases were selected for USG guided ESWL and 50 cases for fluoroscopy guided ESWL. Efficacy of  localization and fragmentation of renal stones by these methods were examined in relation to various factors such as age, sex, type of stone, size and localization which concluded that USG guided ESWL is the preferred option in all renal calculus <2cm.
