Objective

To report the use of a laparoscopic retrieval device for removal of uroliths via a perineal urethrotomy.
Study Design

Case report.
Animals

A 12‐year‐old Konenklijk Warmbloed Paardenstamboek Nederland (KWPN) gelding and a 15‐year‐old Holsteiner gelding.
Methods

Perineal urethrotomy was performed on 2 standing sedated geldings and the urolith was removed using a laparoscopic retrieval device.
Results

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.
Conclusions

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.
