Mini vs standard percutaneous nephrolithotomy for renal stones: a comparative study

To compare the outcome of mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy versus standard-PNL for renal stones. Ret rospective study was performed between March 2010 and May 2013 for patients treated by Mini-PNL or standard-PNL through 18 and 30 Fr tracts, respectively, using pneumatic lithotripsy. Semirigid ureteroscope (8.5/11.5 Fr) was used for Mini-PNL and 24 Fr nephroscope for standard-PNL.

The modifed ultra‑mini percutaneous nephrolithotomy technique and comparison with standard nephrolithotomy: a randomized prospective study

To compare the success and complications of ultra-mini percutaneous nephrolithotomy (UPNL) and standard percutaneous nephrolithotomy (SPNL) techniques.

Simultaneous Bilateral Endoscopic Manipulation for Bilateral Renal Stones

The total operative time was 80 minutes. No intra or post-operative complications were experienced. On post-op day one the creatinine serum level was stable (0.7 mg/dl); he was discharged home 48 hours later. Ureteral stents were removed seven days after the procedure.

Immunotherapy for stone disease

In addition to traditional risk factors such as low urine volume or hypercalciuria, emerging data suggest that calcium oxalate (CaOx), one of the most common mineral complexes in the urine, elicits a strong immunologic response.

Which Type of Water Is Recommended for Patients with Stone Disease (Hard or Soft Water, Tap or Bottled Water): Evidence from a Systematic Review over the Last 3 Decades

The role of the mineral constituents in water and their role in kidney stone disease (KSD) have been a long-standing subject of debate. The aim of our systematic review was to evaluate the relevance of different types of water in stone disease.

Effect of transcutaneous electrical acupoint stimulation on postoperative analgesia after ureteroscopic lithotripsy: a randomized controlled trial

Transcutaneous electrical acupoint stimulation (TEAS) is an effective analgesic measure. We studied the analgesic effect of TEAS by applying it alone after ureteroscopic lithotripsy, rather than applying it as a supplementary analgesic measure

Comparison of the efficacy and safety of URSL, RPLU, and MPCNL for treatment of large upper impacted ureteral stones: a randomized controlled trial

There are three minimally invasive methods for the management of large upper impacted ureteral stones: mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy (MPCNL), transurethral ureteroscope lithotripsy (URSL), and retroperitoneal laparoscopic ureterolithotomy (RPLU)
