Introduction: Ureteroscopy is now the most frequent treatment used around the world for stone disease. Technological advancement, efficiency, safety, and minimally invasiveness of this procedure are some of the reasons for this change of trend. Materials and methods: In this review of the literature, a search of the PubMed database was conducted to identify articles related to ureteroscopy and accessories. The committee assigned by the International Consultation on Urological Disease reviewed all the data and produced a consensus statement relating to the ureteroscopy and all the particularities around this procedure. Conclusion: This manuscript provides literatures and recommendations for endourologists to keep them informed in regard to the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative consideration in regard of a ureteroscopy.
