Outcomes of retrograde intrarenal surgery compared with percutaneous nephrolithotomy
in elderly patients with moderate-size kidney stones: a matched-pair analysis.
Mini percutaneous nephrolithotomy
in the treatment of renal and upper ureteral stones: Lessons learned from a review of the literature.
Categorisation of complications and validation of the Clavien score for percutaneous nephrolithotomy
The key requisite of any percutaneous nephrolithotomy

Multi-tract percutaneous nephrolithotomy
for large complete staghorn calculi," Urol Int, Vol.
Global Study: Tract dilation comparisons in 5537 patients.
Therefore, we conducted subgroup analyses, fitting separate regression models for the five stone treatments examined: percutaneous nephrolithotomy
, shockwave lithotripsy, ureteroscopy, conventional extraction, and those ancillary procedures nonspecific for stone therapy.
In the study, a total of 45 women and 38 men with a solitary kidney were treated with shock wave lithotripsy (53), percutaneous nephrolithotomy
(18), or the two techniques combined (12).
(PNL), still the method of choice to remove large urinary calculi, has evolved into an even less traumatic procedure and often is performed in combination with ESWL.
Sometimes a procedure called percutaneous nephrolithotomy
is recommended to remove a stone.
Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy and percutaneous nephrolithotomy
have some disadvantages with multiple intrarenal stones.
