One of the barriers to a more widespread dissemination of flexible ureteroscopy are the
costs associated with the ureteroscope itself. The initial purchase price of the
ureteroscope can be high, and the lifespan of the scope can be distressingly short. An

important challenge inherent in the use of reusable flexible ureteroscopes is the
oftentimes-involved process of cleaning the scope from a previous case and readying it for
the next case. These processes are complex, and involve multiple personnel throughout
many positions within the hospital (nurses, technologists, technicians, etc). A complete
accounting of the costs associated with flexible ureteroscopy must, necessarily take all of
these steps into consideration. The authors have performed a very nice study that takes
the first step towards such an accounting. As the economic pressures associated with
medical care become ever more intense, a better understanding of the true costs of
surgical procedures is most welcome. For flexible ureteroscopy, a procedure where the
margin between profitability and loss is quite thin, such information is particularly
important.
