BACKGROUND Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is a common endourologic procedure with less morbidity than open surgery. However, pain around the nephrostomy tube requires good post operative analgesia. So we hypothesize that infiltration of local anesthetic from the renal capsule to the skin around the nephrostomy tract would relieve the pain in the initial postoperative period. METHODS 60 adult patients of either sex with ASA physical status I to III and undergoing percutaneous… CONTINUE READING
