In some rare cases when the stone cannot be treated endourologically (big stone, stuck in the ureteric wall, decline of repeated ureteroscopies and stenting, etc) we choose to approach it with a ureterolithotomy. This is an operation performed through the abdomen with a laparoscopic (robotically assisted) way that gives us the opportunity to open the ureter, remove the stone and suture it again after placing a stent that we will remove 3 weeks later.
