Conclusion: Our initial experience concluded that Miniperc technique is a safe and effective treatment option for renal stones in pediatric population.
Conclusions: In this study, preoperative stenting offered few operative advantages and did not meaningfully influence returns to the ED and readmissions within 90 days after ureteroscopy.
Conclusion: RSS is viable options in the treatment of challenging urologic stone with high success rate and low risk of complication. The need for open stone surgery was eliminated by RSS at our center.

CONCLUSIONS: We found that visual PCNL was a safe and efficacious treatment for renal stones that may be considered as an alternative to conventional PCNL, especially in patients with mild hydronephrosis. Further prospective randomized controlled trials are needed to confirm the results of this study . PMID: 31287255 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
