Abstract

Disposable stone retrieval devices are an inherent element of modern-day stone management. Efforts are being made in several different areas to improve the efficiency of stone removal. Ureteral access sheaths with pressure control features as well as suction capabilities are being explored as one such mechanism. Additional efforts are being made to improve stone basket design, grasping capabilities, and deployment mechanisms. Finally, bioadhesives are being developed to potentially improve the capability to extract otherwise difficult small stone fragments and debris from the kidney.
