Background: To investigate the factors related to patients’ anxiety who suffering with urinary calculi before undergoing the minimally invasive surgery and propose the psychological intervention.

Methods: Data were collected and measured with the self-made questionnaire, social support revaluated scale (SSAS) and hospital anxiety depression scale (HADS) one day before the operation, including the gender, age, culture degree, SAS score, stone conditions and patients’ conditions. And then the patients with anxiety were treated with psychological interventions.

Results: Our results indicate that the gender, age, education, and surgical costs had no effect on the HADS score (P>0.05). However, patients with lower preoperative SSAS score, larger stone, the bilateral stone and longer course of disease, and worried about the success rate had higher HADS score (P<0.05).

Conclusions: Patients with lower SSAS score, more complicated calculi conditions, and who worry about the surgery cost and prognosis are the main factors associated with the occurrence of anxiety.

Keywords: Urinary calculus; pre-operative; anxious; hospital anxiety depression scale (HADS)
