    Title Novel Use of the Gelport to Expedite Transition to Robot-assisted Partial Nephrectomy.
    Date September 2010
    Journal Journal of Endourology / Endourological Society
    Excerpt

    Robot-assisted partial nephrectomy is associated with a learning curve, necessitating proficiency in robotic renal dissection, hilar control, and subsequent mass excision and renorrhaphy. The Gelport can be used during these procedures to expedite initial control of the renal pedicle and to add to the surgeon's comfort level while transitioning to this procedure.

    Title Cost and Efficacy of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy Versus Ureteroscopy in the Treatment of Lower Ureteral Calculi.
    Date September 1992
    Journal The Journal of Urology
    Excerpt

    We retrospectively reviewed the extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) and ureteroscopy experience relative to cost and efficacy of a group of practitioners skilled in the use of both procedures for the treatment of lower ureteral stones. Although the initial success rate was higher with ureteroscopy, no significant difference could be found in final success or complication rates. The cost of ESWL was approximately 60% higher than that for ureteroscopy (mean $7,320.26 versus $4,568.47, p less than 0.005). Given the current restraints on resources, and the equal efficacy and morbidity of both procedures, ureteroscopy must be considered the procedure of choice in the management of lower ureteral stones.
