The supine position is becoming increasingly popular in percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL). Renal puncture is the key step for a successful PNL procedure. The aim of this study was to describe a novel method for renal puncture and compare it with a previously described method.

We aimed to compare the outcomes of supine and prone miniaturized percutaneous nephrolithotomy (m-PNL) in the treatment of lower pole, middle pole and renal pelvic stones.
To assess the safety of the super-mini percutaneous nephrolithotomy (SMP) versus the minimally invasive percutaneous nephrolithotomy (MPCNL) in the treatment of pediatric renal calculus.
To evaluate feasibility and efficiency of simultaneous bilateral supine mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy in patients with bilateral kidney stones.
The oblique-supine position for percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) has advantages, but the position fixation methods are inadequate. This study aimed to analyze the PCNL outcomes using a patented sel...
Ultrasound guidance for percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) has gained acceptance amongst urologists given its numerous advantages over fluoroscopy. While traditionally performed in the prone position...
this present study is to compare the result of fluoroscopy, ultrasonography (US) in the guidance of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) and pcn .
Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL) is frequently used today for renal stones. percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL) procedure has become the treatment of choice for many patients with symptom...
To evaluate whether 5 days of levofloxacin before percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) in reducing upper urinary tract infection and urosepsis after PCNL.
Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is the first choice for the treatment of ≥ 2cm renal stones. The positions of PCNL includes supine, prone and lateral. PCNL has been performed in my c...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether continuous intravenous ketorolac infusion reduces pain in patients who are having percutaneous nephrolithotomy for kidney stone disease.
Surgical removal of large KIDNEY CALCULI by means of a percutaneous nephroscope which is passed into the KIDNEY PELVIS through a track created in the patient's back.
Radiographic visualization of the aorta and its branches by injection of contrast media, using percutaneous puncture or catheterization procedures.
Percutaneous excision of a herniated or displaced intervertebral disk by posterolateral approach, always remaining outside the spinal canal. Percutaneous nucleotomy was first described by Hijikata in Japan in 1975. In 1985 Onik introduced automated percutaneous nucleotomy which consists in percutaneous aspiration of the nucleus pulposus. It is carried out under local anesthesia, thus reducing the surgical insult and requiring brief hospitalization, often performed on an outpatient basis. It appears to be a well-tolerated alternative to surgical diskectomy and chymopapain nucleolysis.
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
Percutaneous transabdominal puncture of the uterus during pregnancy to obtain amniotic fluid. It is commonly used for fetal karyotype determination in order to diagnose abnormal fetal conditions.
