The aim of the article: evaluation of the results of treatment of patients with nephrolithiasis by distance shock-wave lithotripsy on the basis of the data on kidneys received from multispiral computed tomography. Material and Methods. The study involved 46 patients who were hospitalized in the clinic of urology with diagnosed urolithiasis with the pres- ence of a renal calculus from 10 to 17 mm in size. A complex of laboratory analyses including multispiral computed tomography was used. The concrement elimination was carried out by distance shock-wave lithotripsy Results. Correlation analysis and ROC-analysis did not show the efficacy of distance shock-wave lithotripsy comparing scanning procedures and distance shock-wave lithotripsy. Conclusion. The size and average density of a concrement according to multispiral computed tomography should not be served as a basis for prognosis of effective fragmentation of concre-ments by distance shock-wave lithotripsy in patients with urolithiasis caused by stones of 10-17 mm in size.
