What is the best treatment for left sided proximal ureteral calculus 1 CM in size with hydronephrosis and mild hydroureter?

Plus the anti-inflammatory properties aid in stone passage by reducing ureteral swelling. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

If this shows a blockage you will need ERCP (a procedure done by a gastroenterologist) to clear the stones or sludge ...Read more
