OBJECTIVE To compare the outcomes of miniaturized percutaneous nephrolithotomy (mini-perc) and retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) in children for 10- to 30-mm renal calculi by evaluating operative data, stone-free rates, and associated complications. METHODS The records of 201 pediatric patients who underwent mini-perc (n = 106) or RIRS (n = 95) for intrarenal stones of 10- to 30-mm size were reviewed retrospectively. The χ(2) test was applied to compare the success rates, postoperative… CONTINUE READING
