Effect of ureteral stent diameter on ureteral stent ‐related symptoms
ConclusionThis is the first study to show that larger ‐diameter ureteral stents induce significantly worse urinary symptoms. Ureteral stents with smaller diameters are recommended to improve ureteral stent‐related symptoms.

AbstractThe aim of this study was to determine whether the presence or degree of hydronephrosis (HN) affects the stone disintegration efficacy of shock wave lithotripsy (SWL). A comprehensive literature search using PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, and Web of Science was conducted to retrieve relevant studies. Risk ratios (RRs) and mean differences (MDs) with corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated for comparisons of outcomes of interest. In total, seven comparative studies with 2033 patients were included. Overall results indicated no significant difference in stone-free rate (SFR) and retreatment ra...

CONCLUSION: This review discusses the potential roles of β3-AR as new therapeutic targets by evaluating the results of preclinical and clinical studies related to male lower genitourinary tract function. Looking to the future, the potential benefits of β3-AR agonists from experimental and clinical investigations may provide an attractive therapeutic option.
