PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of 'Bernoulli maneuver' (bringing the access sheath to horizontal plane) on operative time and stone free rates in patients undergoing mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). MATERIALS AND METHODS: All consecutive patients with a solitary kidney stone undergoing a mini-PCNL between 2015 and 2016 were included into this study. Patients were randomized either to standard prone or control (C) group patients or to tilted prone with 'Bernoulli maneuver' group (B) patients...

Introduction Management of paediatric stone disease is challenging, with standard PCNL having a good stone free rate (SFR) but with associated high complication rates. Miniaturisation of this technique has led to the rise of minimally invasive PCNL techniques such as micro (<10Fr) and ultra-mini (<15Fr) PCNL procedures. Our objective was to perform a systematic review of the literature in order to evaluate the success and complication rates of minimally invasive PCNL techniques in the paediatric age group (<18 years)...

INTRODUCTION: Miniaturization of instruments has changed the paradigms of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). To date, however, few studies have analyzed the possible renal trauma generated by PCNL tract dilation. The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare systematically the renal injury of all PNCL dilation techniques in pork kidneys (PK) and cadaveric kidney models (CK). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twelve dilation devices were tested (from 4.8 to 30 French (Fr)) including micro- and mini- PCNL kits, the Alken dilation set, 20 and 30 ATM balloons and the Amplatz set...

INTRODUCTION: The progressive reduction in the calibre of the tract in percutaneous kidney surgery to the point of miniaturisation has expanded its use to smaller stones that until now have been treated with extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) and retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS). OBJECTIVE: To provide an update on the various techniques of small-calibre nephrolithotomy (SC-PCNL) analyse their efficacy, safety and indications and determine their degree of implantation at this time...

To assess the safety and efficacy of minimally invasive percutaneous nephrolithotomy (mPCNL) as compared to standard PCNL (sPCNL) for management of 2-3-cm renal stones in the flank-free modified supine position. Between September 2010 and December 2013, 150 patients (168 renal units) with 2-3-cm renal stones were prospectively randomized into two treatment groups; Group A (75 patients/87 renal units) treated by mPCNL and Group B (75 patients/81 renal units) treated by sPCNL. In both groups, the patients were placed in the flank-free modified supine position...

Miniaturized percutaneous nephrolithotomy (mini-PCNL) has increased in popularity in recent years and is now widely used to overcome the therapeutic gap between conventional PCNL and less-invasive procedures such as shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) or flexible ureterorenoscopy (URS) for the treatment of renal stones. However, despite its minimally invasive nature, the superiority in terms of safety, as well as the similar efficacy of mini-PCNL compared to conventional procedures, is still under debate. The aim of this chapter is to present one of the most recent advancements in terms of mini-PCNL: the Karl Storz "minimally invasive PCNL" (MIP)...

OBJECTIVE: To introduce an emerging technique termed 'super-mini- percutaneous nephrolithotomy' (SMP) and describe its application in practice. METHODS: We described the technique of SMP in the treatment of renal stones with emphasis on the material, indications, technique procedure, advantages, and results. RESULTS: SMP refers to a 7 Ch. nephroscope placed through a 10-14 Ch. metal access sheath with functions of both irrigation and suction-evacuation, to achieve stone fragmentation via laser or pneumatic lithotripsy...

Stone disease has afflicted mankind since centuries; records from ancient civilisations of India and Egypt have shown stones in human bodies. The scientific mind of humans has always made smart endeavours to remove the kidney stones. From large instruments made like the beaks of different animals and birds in 600 BC (Indian civilisation) to extremely sophisticated and miniaturised endoscopic intruments of today the human race has travelled a long way. The theme has always been to remove the stones with minimal morbidity and mortality and with minimum pain to the patient...

INTRODUCTION: Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) has undergone significant changes in recent years in the quest for improving efficacy and reducing morbidity. Newer minimally-invasive modalities of PCNL such as mini-PCNL, ultra-mini PCNL, and micro-PCNL have evolved with advancement in optics and technology. However, with these newer advancements, migration of small fragments produced with laser lithotripsy remains a concern, which may result in incomplete stone clearance. We describe a new technique of PCNL termed "Superperc", that utilizes suction to remove all the fragments and maintain one-way flow...

PURPOSE: Our aim was to compare the different characteristics and outcomes of the Amplatz sheaths and single-step metallic dilators which were used for mini-PCNL procedure in a single institution. METHODS: Retrospective medical records of 236 patients who underwent mini-PCNL were reviewed and divided into Amplatz (n = 151) and metal (n = 85) groups. Perioperative and postoperative data including operative time, fluoroscopy time, hemoglobin decrease, blood transfusion, hospital stay, stone-free rate and any postoperative complication were recorded...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the feasibility and safety of a novel flexible mini-nephroscope in minimally invasive percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). Presumably, limiting the size and number of tracts during PCNL has the potential of decreasing the morbidity of the procedure. We present our experience with this new technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis of patients with multiple kidney stones treated with mini-PCNL combined with a novel flexible mini-nephroscope was performed...

OBJECTIVE: A wide selection of both anterograde and retrograde mini-invasive procedures exist for stones' treatment. The 2016 European Association of Urology (EAU) guidelines still don't univocally define a best option. Our purpose is to give an overview on some European Stone Centers' customs and to compare real life clinical practice with statements of opinion leaders and Guidelines. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In 2015 we performed a survey in 3 step about the spread of retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) and percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) techniques among EAU Section of Urolithiasis (EULIS) members...

INTRODUCTION: Shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) is the treatment of choice for most cases of renal lithiasis in children. Some cases, however, are refractory to SWL and may be associated with anatomic and metabolic changes or a large stone burden. In these circumstances, mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy (mini-PCNL) is an option. OBJECTIVE: The aim was to assess the safety and efficacy of high-power holmium YAG (Ho:YAG) laser in mini-PCNL for staghorn calculi. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The clinical records relating to 35 mini-PCNLs (Table) performed between January 2008 and December 2012 in 33 patients (27 boys and 6 girls; mean age 7 years, range 2-18 years) were retrospectively reviewed...

We aim to compare the outcomes, including the morbidity and success rates in children undergoing percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) using different sized devices. According to the size of instruments used during surgery, three different groups (ultra-mini-PCNL, mini-PCNL and adult size PCNL) were composed and the outcomes were compared between the groups. PCNL was applied to 225 renal units of 220 children, including 5 patients with bilateral kidney stones. Percutaneous nephrolithotomy was performed using adult instruments (24 F) in 82 renal units, using pediatric instruments (18 F) in 89 and using minimal-size instruments (9...

INTRODUCTION: Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) has witnessed rapid advancements, the latest being ultra-mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy (UMP), which makes the use of 11-13F sheaths as compared to 24-30F sizes used in conventional PCNL. This miniaturization aims to reduce morbidity and improve patient outcomes. We evaluated the safety and efficacy of UMP and report our ourtcomes. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 120 patients underwent UMP from July 2012 to March 2014...
