Materials and methodology: 192 patients’ males and females with a ureteral ≤ 10 mm single stone size were covered in current investigation. Clinical out analyses for different stone sizes was done. Results: size of stone was detected as associated to the hydronephrosis degree and the need likelihood for management surgically.
