Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL) is a complicated procedure for urology trainees. This study was designed to investigate the effect of trainees' ages and previous experience, as well as the number of operated cases, on proficiency at PNL by using patient outcomes. A cross sectional observational study was designed during a five-year period. Trainees in PNL fellowship programs were included. At the end of the program, the trainees' performance in PNL was assessed regarding five competencies and scored 1-5...

REVIEW
Mohamed A Elkoushy, Sero Andonian
Patients presenting with nephrolithiasis often undergo repeated imaging studies before, during, and after management. Considering the significant risk of stone recurrence in primary stone-formers, repeated imaging studies are not uncommon. Cumulative effects of ionizing radiation exposure from various imaging studies could potentially increase the risk for developing cataracts and solid malignancies in urolithiasis patients. Therefore, practitioners planning or performing imaging studies with ionizing radiation are compelled to keep radiation exposure to humans and the environment as low as possible, thus strictly adhering to the ALARA (As Low as Reasonably Achievable) principles...

Purpose The study sought to compare the procedural and clinical results of SMP with the use of the first- and new- generation devices. Methods A prospective, comparative cohort study was carried out between February 2013 to January 2017. Patients who underwent either first or new-generation SMP were eligible for the study. Inclusion criteria were adult patients with renal stone <4 cm, or in pediatric patients with renal stone < 2.5cm with a history of failed SWL. The primary outcome of the present study was the operating time, which was calculated from the starting of percutaneous puncture to the wound closure...

Urolithiasis is a well-known and common late complication in patients with urinary diversion. Patients without urinary diversion lead to symptoms such as hematuria and ureteral colic, whereas stones in patients with urinary diversion tend to be asymptomatic and are often diagnosed incidentally during staging examinations of oncologic diseases. We report the case of a 64-year-old male patient with a lower pole kidney stone and a stone in the ileal ureter substitution. He presented with diffuse abdominal and left-sided flank pain...

PURPOSE: The impact of drainage type after percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) on the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) has been rarely studied. We conducted a prospective randomized study to evaluate the differences in HRQoL among patients who received different drainage types. METHODS: 90 patients who underwent PCNL were randomized into three groups to receive a nephrostomy tube (Group 1), a double-J (DJ) stent (Group 2) and an open-ended ureteral catheter (Group 3) after PCNL, respectively...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Intercostal nerve blockade (ICNB) and peritubal infiltration of the nephrostomy tract are well-established regional anaesthetic techniques for alleviating pain after percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). This prospective study compared the efficacy of ICNB and peritubal local anaesthetic infiltration of the nephrostomy tract in providing post-operative analgesia following PCNL. METHODS: Sixty American Society of Anesthesiologist physical status 1 and II patients scheduled for PCNL requiring nephrostomy tube were randomised to receive either peritubal infiltration or ICNB...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) remains the standard procedure for large (≥2 cm) renal calculi; however, laparoscopic pyelolithotomy (LPL) can be used as an alternative management procedure. The aim of present study was to compare LPL and PCNL in terms of efficacy and safety for the management of large renal pelvic stones. METHODS: A literature search was performed in Jan 2016 using electronic databases (Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, Medline, and EMBASE) to identify relevant studies for the meta-analysis...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of the specialty (urologist versus radiologist) of the physician obtaining percutaneous renal access (RA) on perioperative outcomes, complications, and costs of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). METHODS: We used data from a national hospital discharge database to identify patients undergoing PCNL between 2003-2015. Procedure codes related to RA were linked to physician specialty. We examined patient demographics, Charlson comorbidity index (CCI), postoperative complications, length of stay (LOS), and direct hospital costs as well as hospital and surgeon characteristics stratified by specialty of the physician obtaining RA...

BACKGROUND: We analyzed the effect of comprehensive care on the patients who received minimally invasive percutaneous nephrolithotomy (MPCNL). METHODS: Patients hospitalized from 2013-2014 in Zhumadian Central Hospital (n=124) were enrolled and divided into two groups on random basis. The control group was treated with routine nursing model while the observation group was given comprehensive care additionally. The surgery time, degree of comfort, complications and successful cases, hospitalization time, sleep quality, nursing satisfaction and changes of systolic pressure, pulse and respiratory at different time were observed and analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Renal staghorn stones are challenging for urologists to ensure maximum stone clearance and minimal morbidity. Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) has become the gold standard treatment for renal staghorn stones. To assess the safety and efficacy of a novel integrated rigid and flexible percutaneous nephroscope(Rigi-flex nephroscope) in PCNL for renal staghorn stones.We present our initial experience with this new technique. METHODS: From March to July 2016, a prospective analysis of 3 patients with staghorn stones treated with Rigi-flex nephroscope in PCNLunder totally ultrasound guidance by paravertebral block (PVB) anesthesia was done...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is an established technique for removal of large stones from the upper urinary tract. It is a complex, multistep procedure requiring several classes of instruments that are subject to operator misuse and device malfunction. We report device-related adverse events during PCNL from the MAUDE database using a recently developed standardized classification system. METHODS: The MAUDE database was queried for "percutaneous nephrolithotomy" from 2006 to 2016...

The objective of the study is to compare the efficacy of percutaneous nephrolithotomy using holmium laser vs pneumatic lithotripsy. From August 2010 to March 2014, 200 patients with double kidney and single kidney stones without previous operations or other diseases were randomized into two groups according to the type of lithotripter used: pneumatic (n = 100) and laser (n = 100). The preoperative, intraoperative, and post-operative follow-up findings were analyzed and compared. The average stone size was similar in both the pneumatic and holmium laser lithotripsy groups (202...

PURPOSE: Renal pelvic pressure (RPP) may vary during percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between endoscope caliber, renal pelvic pressure, hospital stay and postoperative pain. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A review of 20 PCNLs with ureteroscopic guidance and renal pelvic pressure monitoring was performed. The ureteroscope working channel was connected to a pressure transducer and utilized to determine RPP at baseline, when irrigating using a 26 Fr rigid nephroscope, a 16 Fr flexible nephroscope and during suction...
