The present paper, aims to assess and compare the therapeutic efficacies of silodosin, Tadalafil, and their combination for the negotiation of large semi-arid ureteroscopic through ureteric orifice during ureteral stone management. During endoscopy, the patients in groups A, B, and C exhibited wider ureteric orifice than the patients of group D. About 70.6%, 60.6%, 62.9% and 32.4% of patients belonging to groups A, B, C, and D, respectively, exhibited easy negotiation. Significantly lower proportions of patients in groups A, B, and C (35.3%, 39.4%, and 28.6%, respectively) exhibited the need for ureteral dilation compared to those in group D (61.8%). In addition, the duration of surgery for groups A, B, and C was less than that for group D. Preoperative silodosin and Tadalafil administration in patients undergoing ureteroscopic for ureteral stones improves the access of large size duretero scope and reduced the need for ureteral dilatation with less surgical duration and minimal adverse events.
