Abstract

Background: Urinary system stone disease is an important health problem. It has been reported to have a prevalence of 14.8% in Turkey. The aim of the renal stone removal surgery is to clear the stones with minimal complications. Retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) is a safe method due to the fewer and minor complications. As a clinic in central Anatolia, we aimed at researching the factors affecting RIRS success in our area.
