Abstract

We describe a technique one can use when only a lubricious wire is able to pass an impacted stone that could otherwise not be passed, over which a new hydrophilic 'Glide Catheter' is then passed beyond the stone. The lubricious wire can then be exchanged for a stiffer wire that will aid the retrograde passage of a ureteral catheter, stent, or other endourologic device in both a safe and effective manner.
