OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy of tubeless percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) using double-J stent and tubeless PCNL with external ureteral catheter in decreasing post-PCNL complications. METHODS This prospective randomized comparative study includes 148 cases with kidney stones. They were operated by either tubeless PCNL with double-J stent (Group 1) or tubeless with ureteric catheter (Group 2). Group 1 consists of 72 cases (54 males and 18 females). Group 2 consists of 76 patients (56… CONTINUE READING
