Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) and open surgery together comprised less than 5% of procedures. Among Medicare beneficiaries in 1998, SWL, URS, and PCNL comprised 54%, 41%, and 3–4% of procedures, respectively. Commercially insured individuals demonstrated a remarkably similar distribution and trend [4]. On the other hand, Kerble and colleagues reported a 53% increase in URS utilization between 1990 and 1998 at Washington University, St. Louis. Because their institution represents a tertiary care center with a strong Endourology program, however, the generalizability of their institutional findings is limited.
