This paper presents empirical data from the United Kingdom National Health Service on the comparative mean hospital costs per patients of first generation extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) and percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCN) in the treatment of kidney stones.
These results were subjected to a sensitivity analysis and relatd to evidence on the health effects of the two approaches to treatment.
The hospital costs of PCN were found to be lower than for ESWL in the empirical comparison and in most but not all of the scenarios developed in the sensitivity analysis.
