Use of a Laparoscopic Retrieval Device for Urolith Removal through a Perineal Urethrotomy
To report the use of a laparoscopic retrieval device for removal of uroliths via a perineal urethrotomy.
Perineal urethrotomy was performed on 2 standing sedated geldings and the urolith was removed using a laparoscopic retrieval device.
In both cases, uroliths were removed successfully with no short‐ or long‐term complications. The larger of the 2 uroliths measured 6 cm in length and 4.6 cm in width.
Removal of a urolith via a perineal urethrotomy using a laparoscopic retrieval device was an expedient and minimally traumatic method that obviated the need for fragmentation before removal.
