Table 2 Comparison of post-procedure data between groups

From: Patients’ life quality during ureterorenoscopy, ureterorenoscopy plus JJ insertion and shock wave lithotripsy in the management of distal ureteral stone: a prospective clinical study

  SWL (n = 44) URS (n = 27) URS + JJ (n = 31) P value
Hospitalization (hours) 6.1 ± 1.9a 21.1 ± 17.8b 20.4 ± 16.7b 0.001
Analgesia requirements 14 (31.8%)a 21 (77.8%)b 20 (64.5%)b 0.001
Stone free status 35 (79.5%) 23 (85.2%) 26 (83.9%) 0.846
Complications     0.096
Renal colic 2 (4.5%) 3 (11.1%) 3 (9.7%)  
Fever 1 (3.7%) 1 (3.2%)  
Macroscopic hematuria 1 (2.3%) 1 (3.7%)  
Sepsis 1 (3.7%)  
  1. SWL—Shock Wave Lithotripsy, URS—Ureteroscopy
  2. Lower-case letters are used to define the group that makes the difference. The same letters (such as a-a) define that there is no difference, different letters (such as a-b) define that there is a difference
