Conclusion: Laparoscopic retroperitoneal pyelolithotomy for upper urinary tract calculi is superior to open surgery because of the significantly reduced hospital stays and cosmetic outcomes of patients who underwent the laparoscopic surgery.
Patients with a history of open pyelolithotomy were enrolled in Group 2.
Minimal indwelling time is 1 year, while maximum 7 years in a 60/F (History of open pyelolithotomy).
Out of all these cases, right pyelolithotomy was done in 22 (55%) cases, left pyelolithotomy in 9 (22.5%), right ureterolithotomy 3 (7.5%), left ureterolithotomy 1 (2.5%), right nephrolithotomy 3 (7.5%), whereas stones passed after hydrotherapy in 2 (5%) (Medical expense therapy) and D.
Subsequently, a robotic-assisted laparoscopic pyelolithotomy was performed resulting in stone-free status in that left moiety.
Objective: We report our experience with laparoscopic transperitoneal pyelolithotomy (LTPL) and percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) in the management of patients with calculi in anomalous kidneys.

Procedures performed included dismembered pyeloplasty, varicocelectomy, simple nephrectomy, renal cyst decortication, and pyelolithotomy. During the pyeloplasty, a stent was inserted in the traditional laparoscopic manner using an angiocatheter.
