Abstract

Giant ureteric calculi are rarely seen these days because of early diagnosis of ureteric calculi and subsequent effective treatment by non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures. These giant calculi can cause a significant and irreversible compromise of renal function if not treated in time. Here we report three such cases where ureteric calculi were measured to be more than 5centimeters fulfilling the criteria to be named as giant ureteric calculi and
managed successfully using the open method of ureterolithotomy.
