Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy During Early Pregnancy in Urgent Situations: Is It Feasible and Safe?

CONCLUSION: PCNL should not be considered as the first therapeutic method in the first trimester of pregnancy, unless in urgent situations such as symptomatic renal pelvic stone with moderate to severe hydronephrosis in patients who do not tolerate or are complicated by nephrostomy or internal stent. However, this procedure could be technically demanding and should be done in centers with enough experience and equipment in percutaneousnephrolithotomy. PMID: 29101756 [PubMed - in process]
