During the bivariate analysis of complications causes, the interrelationship with localization in the upper and middle third of the ureter, the size of more than1 cmand a density of more than 1000 Hounsfield units was revealed. Taking into account the high risk of failure and complications, intracorporeal ureterolithotripsy in patients with complicated ureteral calculi, a differentiated approach to the use of devices for the disintegration of the concretion, or other types of surgery should be used in this group of patients.
