Expert panels of AUA and EAU defined highly effective approaches to surgical treatment of ureterolithiasis and recommended extracorporeal and contact lithotripsy as the main options. Therapeutic strategy for ureteral stones measuring less than 10 mm is clearly defined and supported by the Russian Society of Urology. At the same time, the views of researchers on the management of large ureteral stones vary. This literature review provides information on the results of extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy and contact ureterolithotripsy of large stones located in various parts of the ureter. Besides, the article outlines the results of treating ureterolithiasis using the second line surgical modalities.
