Abstract

Nine recent endourologic cases are presented that evidence percutaneous electrolysis and electrocautery as new and safe techniques for incising the urothelium. Electrolysis with balloon dilation was employed to remove stones sequestered behind infundibular and/or diverticular neck stenoses, to correct ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) stenoses and strictures, and to recanalize a totally obstructed fibrotic UPJ.
