AIM: To determine the treatment strategy for patients with renal tumors and coexistent contralateral kidney stone. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From 2006 to 2015, 1380 and 4833 patients underwent surgery for renal tumours and kidney stones, respectively. The combination of stone disease and renal tumor was found in 159 (11.5%) patients, of whom 61 patients had indications for surgical treatment of both diseases at the time of hospital admission. Of these, 17 (27.9%) patients (8 men and 9 women) had renal tumors and coexistent contralateral kidney stone...

AIM: To investigate the level of anxiety and the severity of asthenic state in patients with staghorn nephrolithiasis treated by of minimally invasive therapies - percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PNLT) and retrograde nephrolithotripsy (RNLT). PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study analyzed the psychological state of 150 patients with staghorn nephrolithiasis aged 25 to 75 years before and after PNLT and RNLT. Testing was performed at baseline, at 5-7 day of hospital stay (average time of preparing for surgery) and after treatment with the use of various questionnaires: Anxiety Scale, Asthenic conditions scale and Pain questionnaire...

AIM: To test the effectiveness of nitinol stents in restoring patency of pyeloureteral segment (PUS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Endoureteral nitinol stents were used in 54 patients. The indications for stenting were recurrent strictures of upper urinary tract and ureteral tumor obstruction in 34 and 20 patients, respectively. In 9 (16.6%) of them, including 4 women and 5 men aged 28-65 years, stenting was performed for extensive recurrent PUS strictures. In 8 patients extensive strictures resulted from various surgical interventions on the PUS...

INTRODUCTION: Percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PNL) is the recommended method of surgical treatment of kidney stones of size greater than 2 cm. Trends in the development of modern urology have been steadily toward less traumatic method to treat nephrolithiasis - minimally invasive PNL. The present work aimed to explore of the possibilities of one of the modern variants of minimally invasive PNL - ultra-mini-PNL in treating nephrolithiasis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study included 60 patients (mean age 45...

PURPOSE: To compare the clinical, metabolic, and calculi characteristics of cystine and struvite stone patients after percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Between January/2006-July/2013, 11 cystine stone patients were treated in our clinic. Of those, 3 were excluded due to incomplete follow-up. Eight cystine stone patients (2 with bilateral disease; 10 renal units-RU) were considered for further analysis. A cohort of 8 struvite stone formers (10RU) was matched having the same age, gender, body mass index (BMI) and Guys stone score...

BACKGROUND: Lithiasis during pregnancy can be a serious problem representing a danger to both the mother and the fetus. Surgical intervention is needed in approximately one-third of patients reporting pain despite analgesia and/or signs of persistent infection and obstruction, but there is a lack of consensus in the scientific literature as to the use of the most appropriate procedure to treat this condition. CASE PRESENTATION: We describe our experience in the treatment of a complicated reno-ureteral lithiasis in a 27-year-old patient in the first trimester of pregnancy...

OBJECTIVES: To present our experience with a central, non-calyceal puncture protocol for percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL) in an attempt to challenge the opinion of worldwide adopted calyceal puncture as the less traumatic site of percutaneous entrance into the collecting system. PATIENTS AND METHODS: During 2012, a total of 137 consecutive, unselected patients were subjected to PCNL in our department. Non-calyceal punctures were performed to all cases and followed by subsequent track dilations up to 30 Fr...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the impact of three-dimensional (3D) printed pelvicaliceal system models on residents' understanding of pelvicaliceal system anatomy before percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with unilateral complex renal stones indicating PCNL were selected. Usable data of patients were obtained from CT-scans in Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) format. Mimics software version 16.0 (Materialise, Belgium) was used for segmentation and extraction of pelvicaliceal systems (PCSs)...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficiency and security of the balloon dilators versus fascial dilators in percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL), We compared the difference of intraoperative and postoperative parameters of patients using these two different methods of expansion and having no significant statistic differences in peroperative parameters. METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of 134 patients undergoing PCNL with upper urinary calculi from January 2012 to January 2014 in Luoyang Central Hospital affiliated to Zhengzhou University...

We report a case of 15-year old female who presented with recurrent lower abdominal pain treated three times with ESWL previously. She was diagnosed as having right ectopic kidney with a 4 cm renal stone in renal pelvis and involving lower and mid calyx. She was treated successfully with laparoscopic assisted transmesocolonic percutaneous nephrolithotripsy. Procedure resulted in complete stone clearance without any perioperative or post operative complication. Patient stayed in hospital for 72 h with no drains or stents after day 5, post operatively...

Aim. Sonography has been brought in percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL) as an adjunct to or substitute for X-ray to restrict radiation exposure. This study was designed to investigate the possible predictors for the success of the solo sonographically guided PCNL. Methods. 148 consecutive cases were prospectively enrolled. All steps of PCNL were performed solely with sonography guidance under spinal anesthesia. Residual stones were evaluated the day after surgery using sonography and plain radiography. Results...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to develop a method for estimating DMSA SPECT renal function on each renal pole in order to evaluate the effect of percutaneous nephrolithotripsy by focusing the measurements on the region through which the percutaneous approach is performed. METHODS: Twenty patients undergoing percutaneous nephrolithotripsy between November 2010 and June 2012 were included in this study. Both Planar and SPECT-DMSA studies were carried out before and after nephrolithotripsy...

A 54-year-old man was introduced to our hospital for follow-up examinations after renal transplantation. At the initial visit, a 25 mm renal transplant stone was noted, which had enlarged to 32 mm at an examination 1 year later. We first attempted transurethral lithotripsy (TUL), but failed due to ureteral stricture. However, we could completely remove the stone in 2 sessions of percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PNL). The incidence of urinary lithiasis after renal transplantation ranges from 0.17-1.8%, for which PNL and TUL are frequently used...

INTRODUCTION: For small renal calculi (< 2 cm) the currently available treatment options include extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL), retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) and standard/mini percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL). A new method, microperc, has therefore been developed, in which a smaller tract size and smaller instruments were used. AIM: To present our clinical experiences with micropercutaneous nephrolithotripsy (microperc) in the treatment of small renal calculi...

BACKGROUND: Gaining access into non-dilated renal collecting systems for percutaneous nephrolithotripsy, particularly in patients with prohibitive body habitus and/or scoliosis, is often challenging using conventional techniques. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility of cone-beam CT for percutaneous nephrostomy placement for subsequent percutaneous nephrolithotripsy in children and adolescents. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of percutaneous nephrostomy revealed use of cone-beam CT and 3-D guidance in 12 percutaneous nephrostomy procedures for 9 patients between 2006 and 2015...

UNLABELLED: Objectives should be describe a modular training scheme (MTS) which aims to provide training in percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL) and ensure the safety of the patients. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Two trainees with no experience in PCNL attended the MTS under the supervision of an experienced mentor. The MTS included five modules, comprising an initial animal laboratory course (using pigs), to acquire basic skills (Module 1), and Modules 2-5 included making the puncture, tract dilatation, single-stone and large-stone management in clinical cases, respectively...
