Ureterolithiasis is the term for a calculus (stone) lodged in the ureter. The ureteral stone (more commonly a "kidney stone"), is a chunk of insoluble material, usually calci…um compounds, that moves from the kidney and lodges in the ureter, the tube that carries urine to the bladder. Severe pain can be caused by a blocked or swollen ureter. In medical terms, a ureteral stone is a ureterolith.

Ureteroscopy: is a treament for a nephrolith lodged in the ureter (ureter/o means ureter, and -scopy means visual examination).

If the stone is too large, a laser is used to break it up and the pieces are then removed.
The sharp edges of the stone are rubbing against the walls of a narrow tube causing pain .
