Core Tip This retrospective study aimed to compare the outcomes of retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) and miniaturized percutaneous nephrolithotomy (mini-PCNL) in treating lower pole (LP) renal stones with a diameter of 1.5-2.5 cm. The results showed that the hospital stay (9.39 ± 4.01 vs 14.08 ± 5.26, P < 0.0001) and hospitalization costs (2624.5 ± 513.36 vs 3255.2 ± 976.5, P < 0.0001) in the RIRS patients were much lower than those of the mini-PCNL group. No significant differences were found in the mean operation time or stone-free rates between the RIRS and mini-PCNL groups. RIRS can be considered as an alternative to PCNL for the treatment of LP stones of 1.5-2.5 cm.
