Ureterolithiasis is a serious clinical problem in small animal veterinary medicine, and management can be challenging and frustrating. Various traditional surgical treatment options exist but are associated with significant morbidity and mortality. In humans, minimally invasive treatment options have overtaken traditional surgical removal. This article reviews the current literature on the management of ureteral stone disease, including various types of lithotripsy, and discusses some of the newer minimally invasive options available for small animal veterinary patients. It is important to realize that much of the data in this article is only published in abstract form and is largely one institution's experience with these novel techniques. Articles on minimally invasive management of lower urinary tract uroliths and nephroliths were published in the January 2013 and February 2013 issues, respectively.
