This study has been conducted to survey the result of microultrasonic test joined with ultrasound (US)- guided minipercutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) for upper ureteral and renal stones. Data of 119 patients who went through microultrasonic lithotripsy joined with smaller than expected PCNL were reflectively surveyed. The gathering included 96 men and 23 ladies. All systems of cut and dilatation were guided by US exclusively. Information was broken down by SPSS. The mean activity time was 32.6 minutes (range, 10–110 minutes). The interim of lithotripsy and stone expulsion was 14.5 minutes . The mean postoperative length of stay was 2.7 days . Additionally, sans stone rate (SFR) at release was 95.9% (118/123). The mean hemoglobin drop was 11.6 mg/dL (range 1–26 mg/dL). Evaluations I, II, and IIIa confusions were seen in four, one, and one patients, individually. Subgroup investigation was done to look at the results of 20 mm or less versus 21 mm or more calculi. There was a more extended activity length (40 versus 29 minutes) and lower SFR in the 21 mm or more calculi subgroup. Microultrasonic test joined with US-guided smaller than normal PCNL is a viable and safe technique to treat patients with upper ureteral and renal stones with higher SFR however lower difficulties.
