Treatment of patients with solitary kidney having complex stones is one of the most challenging problem in urology. We present our experience with percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) in treating 16 patients with staghorn stones in a solitary kidney to determine long-term renal functional results. We retrospectively reviewed the records of 16 patients with(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine the impact of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) and tract dilatation methods on global and regional renal function using quantitative single-photon emission computed tomography (QSPECT) of technetium-99m-dimercaptosuccinic acid ((99m)Tc-DMSA). METHODS Seventy-five patients undergoing PCNL between May(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to determine the efficacy (defined by stone-free rates) and safety of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL) in the treatment of medium sized (1-2 cm) symptomatic lower pole renal calculi, and establishment of the short-term morbidity.
