BACKGROUND: Predictive tables and scoring systems can predict stone clearance. However, there is a paucity of evidence regarding the prediction of complications during percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), particularly in children, which remains under-researched. To our knowledge, no studies have evaluated the risk factors for febrile urinary tract infection (FUTI) after pediatric PCNL. OBJECTIVES: To assess the predictive factors of FUTI in prepubertal children after PCNL and determine whether any prophylactic cephalosporins are superior for decreasing the FUTI rate...

Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) has proven very effective in the management of renal stones. However, complications are not so rare, and bleeding is one of the most worrisome; it has a reported incidence of 1%-3% and may happen during track dilatation. In addition, arterial pseudoaneurysms and/or arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) may occur. We report the case of a patient with an intrarenal pseudoaneurysm associated with an AVF, after PCNL. Superselective endovascular embolization with Onyx® was successfully performed, achieving exclusion of the pseudoaneurysm and AVF with preservation of the remaining vascularization of the kidney...

Background: At present, the percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL) is performed both in supine and in prone position. The aim of this paper is to describe an innovative position during PCNL. Methods: We describe a supine position. The patient's legs are slightly abducted at the hips. The thorax is laterally tilted (inclination 30°-35°) and kept in the right position by one or two gel pads placed between the scapula and the vertebrae. External genitalia can be accessed at any time, so that it is always possible to use flexible instruments in the upper urinary tract...

INTRODUCTION: To make percutaneous access easier in PCNL, we developed Automated Needle Targeting with X-ray (ANT-X) Method: ANT-X uses an image registration software with a closed loop feedback system to autoalign the puncture needle to the desired calyx using the bullseye technique. We tried percutaneous punctures on a live pig model and compared the results with free-hand technique. We then performed our first PCNL in a human subject with the aid of ANT-X. Our patient was a 48 year-old gentleman with a 1...

BACKGROUND: the optimal management of lower calyceal stones is still controversial, because no single method is suitable for the removal of all lower calyceal stones. Minimally invasive procedures such as extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) and flexible ureteroscopy (fURS) are the therapeutic methods for lower calyceal stones. The aim of this study was to identify the optimal management of 10-20 mm lower pole stones. METHODS: a meta-analysis of cohort studies published before July 2016 was performed from Medline and Cochrane databases...

INTRODUCTION: Single institution studies suggest a benefit of a week of preoperative antibiotics prior to percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). These studies are limited by lower quality methodology such as the inclusion of heterogeneous populations or the use of non-standard definitions of sepsis. The American Urological Association (AUA) Best Practice Statement recommends <24 hours of IV antibiotics, but no other data exist about the duration/benefit of preoperative antibiotics. We sought to perform a rigorous (using CONSORT guidelines), multi-institutional trial to assess preoperative antibiotics in PCNL patients at low risk of developing infections...

Background: Urinary tract stones is one of the most frequent medical emergencies which leads to life-threatening complications, namely obstructive uropathy as well as renal failure in some situations. Previously, bilateral stones were treated with either open surgery or percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). However, these treatment options were associated with lengthy operation time, need for more anesthesia, further bleeding, and long hospitalization. Therefore, much effort has been made to treat both sides simultaneously...

A 29-year-old patient with normal preanesthetic evaluation was planned for percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) for right nephrolithiasis with right pyelolithiasis. Surgery was performed under general anesthesia with endotracheal intubation with muscle relaxation. At the conclusion of surgery, when the patient was turned over to supine position, tense abdomen was noted. Immediately extended focused assessment with sonography in trauma (eFAST) was done in which both right and left quadrants of abdomen including pericardial and suprapubic region, right and left thoracic, and both lung basis were examined...

PURPOSE: Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is the preferred surgical treatment for staghorn stones. Two approaches are commonly employed to gain access into the collecting system which consists of either an upper pole (UP) approach or lower pole (LP) approach. However, opinions vary on which approach offers the best access and outcome. In this study, we aim to challenge the traditional paradigm that staghorn stones are most effectively treated through a prone UP approach. We herein report our institutional experience using a prone LP access in PCNL for patients with complete staghorn stones...

A renal artery pseudoaneurysm is a rare but important complication that can occur after renal trauma, renal biopsy, percutaneous nephrostomy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), and partial nephrectomy. The incidence of this potentially life-threatening complication is less than 1%, but is likely to increase with the increasing popularity of endoscopic renal procedures. We present a case of a 30-year female who underwent right PCNL for a right renal pelvic stone. Two weeks later, she presented with massive hematuria...
