PURPOSE We prospectively analyzed the outcome of tubeless percutaneous nephrolithotomies (PCNLs) using two different stenting techniques (i.e., externalized ureteral catheter compared with Double-J placement) without strict exclusion or inclusion criteria. PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty-six patients who were undergoing tubeless PCNL were randomized to two groups: Group 1 (tubeless PCNL with externalized ureteral catheter) and group 2 (tubeless PCNL with Double-J placement). The only exclusion… CONTINUE READING
