Background: Surgical treatments are evolving and flexible Ureterorenoscopy (f-URS) has been shown to outperform extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL) and percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL) in a number of indications. The present study was conducted to assess S.T.O.N.E. score in patients with renal and ureteral stones. Materials and Methods: 82 cases of ureteral and renal stones were recruited. The S.T.O.N.E. score consists of 5 stone characteristics size, topography (location of stone), obstruction, number of stones present and evaluation of Hounsfield Units. Each component is scored on a 1-3 point scale. Results: Out of 82 patients, males were 52 and females were 30. SFR were found to be correlated to S.T.O.N.E. score. As S.T.O.N.E. Score increased, the SFR decreased. Conclusion: The features of S.T.O.N.E. score are relevant in predicting SFR with URS. Size, location, and degree of hydronephrosis were statistically significant factors.
