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...

INTRODUCTION: We are a reporting on the indications, techniques, and limitations of robotic surgery in the management of renal stones disease. Robotic surgery is a good tool to manage large kidney and ureteral stones, particularly in patients with anatomic anomalies. We describe three techniques in managing staghorn kidney stones: robotic anatrophic nephrolithotomy, robotic pyelolithotomy, and robotic nephrolithotomy. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Robotic pyelolithotomy (RP) is ideal for patients with large renal pelvis and partial staghorn stone with a wide extra-renal pelvis...

Focal Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis is a rare chronic inflammatory condition of kidneys which usually is associated with postrenal obstruction or renal stone leading to chronic bacterial infection and eventually chronic glomerular inflammation. About 90% of cases are of the diffuse type and associated with staghorn renal calculi. The case presented in this paper is of the focal type in a 58-year-old diabetic female. Interestingly she did not have symptoms or laboratory presentation of chronic renal bacterial infection except for elevated ESR...

Staghorn stones are large branching stones that fill part of all of the renal pelvis and renal calyces and they can be complete or partial depending on the level of occupancy of the collecting system. Although kidney stones are commoner in men, staghorn stones are less often reported in men compared to women and they are usually unilateral. Due to the significant morbidity and potential mortality attributed to staghorn stones, prompt assessment and treatment is mandatory. Conversely, conservative treatment has been shown to carry a mortality rate of 28% in 10-year period and 36% risk of developing significant renal impairment...

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...

Owing to the fragile kidney and relative small collecting system of pediatric patients, urologists were always reluctant to treat pediatric urolithiasis with PCNL. Here we conduct a study to assess the effectiveness and safety of pediatric patients with renal calculi <6 years.A total of 88 pediatric patients (99 kidney units) <6 years underwent the ultrasound (US)-guided minimally invasive percutaneous nephrolithotomy in our institute from March 2006 to April 2016. The mean age was 30.9 months (range, 7-72 months)...

In this study, we aimed to determine factors affecting the success rate of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL) in children. The series consisted of 41 consecutive children operated on by the same surgical team for renal calculi with PNL between June 2002 and May 2015 in our institution. A single calyx or pelvic stone was described as simple, while calculi located in more than one location (calyx and pelvis or more than one calices) or staghorn stones were described as complex. The procedure was deemed successful if the patient was completely stone-free (SF) or had residual fragments <4 mm...

A 46-year gentleman presented with a left-sided lumbar region pain without fever or dysuria. He denied episodes of acute urinary retention. There was a hard mass at the distal urethra with normal laboratory blood tests. Computed tomography urogram revealed a concurrent left renal staghorn calculus and large distal urethral stone. The urethral stone was fragmented via endourologic technique successfully. We report a case of a non-obstructing large urethral calculus in a gentleman with concurrent left renal staghorn calculus and discuss the literature review...

A 40-year-old man was referred to our urology clinic due to vague abdominal pain and hematuria. Computed tomography (CT) without contrast material visualized an ectopic kidney in the left iliac fossa with a complete staghorn stone. Under general anesthesia, operation was done in supine position with a gentle lateral elevation on the right side. The surgeon stands on the right side of the patient. First, a 12 mm port was inserted at the umbilicus using the Hasson technique. After creation of pneumoperitoneum, operation was done by three 5 mm trocars were arranges as paraumbilical, the point between umbilicus and inguinal canal at left and right side...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Stone formers often have a chronic exposure to significant quantities of ionising radiation from radiological investigations and interventions. Predicting radiation exposure would allow the clinician to quantify expected cumulative radiation and find strategies to minimise exposure. We evaluated radiation exposure during ureteroscopy and laser lithotripsy (URS + LL) for a single stone episode and correlated the results to stone characteristics. METHOD: Data was collected retrospectively for all patients undergoing URS + LL in our institution over a 1 year period...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive procedures have become the standard option for treatment of urinary stones; the use of more invasive techniques is not a common practice currently. This emergent technology is not always available and laparoscopy is the alternative option. There are few reports of laparoscopic management for urinary lithiasis in pediatric patients. This study is about the use of laparoscopic surgery combined with pyeloscopy as a feasible first-line treatment for pediatric urolithiasis in renal and proximal ureteral locations...

RELEVANCE: Management of patients with large and staghorn stones of a solitary kidney is widely debated among urologists and has not been sufficiently investigated, which determined the relevance of this study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study comprised 80 patients with large (>20 mm) and staghorn stones of an anatomically or functionally solitary kidney. Of them, 58 patients underwent percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PNL), and 22 had open surgery. The criterion of the treatment effectiveness was the complete stone clearance or small residual fragments sized less than 3 mm...
