Bacteriological study and structural composition of staghorn stones removed by the anatrophic nephrolithotomic procedure.
Today, open stone surgery is one of the least common management options for stone disease, and endourological procedures, such as extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), uretero-renoscopic stone removal (URS), and PCNL, are more commonmodalities to deal with renal stones.13 In the modern era of endourology, open stone surgery is only recommended in patients with severely distorted intrarenal anatomy.14 Synder and his colleagues compared the success rate, procedure duration, complications, and recovery time for percutaneous and anatrophic nephrolithotomy in patients with staghorn stones.

Modified anatrophic nephrolithotomy for management of staghorn calculi: is renal function preserved.
Patients with a history of ORSS with parenchymal insicion (radial nephrotomies, anatrophic nephrolithotomy, lower pole resection, partial nephrectomy) were included in Group 1 (open nephrolithotomy group).
Modified anatrophic nephrolithotomy for complete staghorn calculus disease--does it still have a place?
For open surgery, anatrophic nephrolithotomy has been shown to cause significant deterioration in renal function in 5 out of 9 children after surgery and this decline ranged from 6% to 16%.
INTRODUCTION: Anatrophic nephrolithotomy is a procedure that is used for the removal of large renal calculi, specifically branched or staghorn calculi.
