Evolution from Percutaneous nephrolithotomy to Mini-PCNL in supine position on the treatment of complex renal calculi: feasibility study.

CONCLUSIONS: Mini-NLP can manage kidney stones and even large staghorn calculi without nephrostomy in a high percentage of patients. The technical evolution towards a small caliber approach maintains the effectiveness of the procedure without impacting its safety, with benefits perceived by patients such as less postoperative pain.

Abstract Primary hyperparathyroidism is a disease that occurs more frequently than generally thought and is often overlooked. Classical symptoms are bone pain and osteoporosis, renal calculi and peptic ulcers. Many patients are asymptomatic or have unspecific complaints. It is easy to establish the biochemical diagnosis based on calcium and parathormone (PTH) levels and 24-h urine calcium excretion. The most sensitive localization procedures for parathyroid adenomas are sonography and Tc-99(m)-MIBI scintigraphy. The indication for surgery is undisputed in symptomatic patients; however, there is controversy co...
