Conclusion: When it comes to safety and efficacy, the use of lower calyceal single-access PCNL has a very low complication rate compared to upper calyceal access PCNL, especially pneumothorax and bleeding.

CONCLUSIONS: Subcapsular renal hematoma represents a rare but potentially serious complication after ureterorenoscopic lithotripsy. Its real incidence and aetiology still need to be clarified. The elevated intrarenal pressures play an important role. Persistent hematuria, flank pain and haemoglobin drop should guide prompt investigation to reach an early diagnosis. In most cases a conservative management is sufficient. PMID: 30037212 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Chen WC, Wu SY, Liao PC, Chou TY, Chen HY, Chiang JH, Su YC, Man KM, Tsai MY, Chen YH Abstract Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge (Danshen), a common medicinal plant in traditional Chinese medicine, has been tested effectively to prevent urolithiasis in animals; nevertheless, the clinical application for urolithiasis remains unclear. We thus investigated the clinical effect of Danshen by analyzing the database from the Taiwan National Institute of Health. The cohort "Danshen-users" was prescribed Chinese herb medicine Danshen after the initial diagnosis of calculus. The control group (non-Danshen-users) w...

The objective of this study is to analyze whether PNL surgery is a safe procedure in patients under a treatment discontinuation protocol for anticoagulant or antiplatelet therapies. We retrospectively studied 301 patients who underwent PNL i n our hospital between 2008 and 2016 and identified 46 patients on chronic antiplatelet or anticoagulation treatment. With respect to PNL outcomes, the stone-free rate was similar (78 vs 74%,p = 0.762) in both groups, without any significant differences in the overall postoperative complications (17 vs 26%,p = 0.203). The incidence of hemorrhagic complicatio...

Conclusions The one-shot dilatation technique using the Ecoset for PCNL can be feasibly, safely, and effectively performed in almost every adult patient. The Amplatz dilator set and balloon dilator set have the disadvantage of relatively high cost, whereas the Ecoset is the cheapest ‘disposable set’ that can be used during PCNL surgery.

AbstractTo 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. In mPCNL group, the tract was dilated up to...

Abstract For the treatment of large upper urinary stones percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is generally considered the first choice, and Laparoscopic Stone Surgery (LSS) is an alternative. We aim to compare the efficiency and safety of PCNL with LSS, as far as the management of large upper urinary stones is concerned. A systematic search from Pubmed, Web of Science, Wiley Online Library and Elsevier was performed up to August 1, 2015 for the relevant published studies. After data extraction and quality assessment, meta-analysis was performed using the RevMan 5.3 software. 15 eligible trials evaluating LSS vs. PC...

Abstract The aim of the study was to objectively analyze the outcomes for minimally invasive percutaneous nephrolithotomy (MPCNL) vs standard percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) by systematic review and meta-analysis of published data. A systematic literature review was performed in November 2014 using the PUBMED, EMBASE and Cochrane Library databases to identify relevant studies. Only comparative studies investigating MPCNL vs PCNL were included. Effect sizes were estimated by pooled odds ratio (ORs) and mean differences (MDs). The analyzed outcomes were stone-free rate (SFR), blood loss, pain assessment, operati...
