Comparison of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy for Inferior Caliceal
Calculus Between Children and Adults: A Retrospective Analysis-Why Do Results Vary?
Percutaneous nephrolithotomy for caliceal
diverticular calculi: A novel single stage approach.
Totally ultrasonography guided PCNL (both in caliceal
puncture and tract dilation) is a good alternative to the fluoroscopic method and has satisfactory outcomes compared with the standard technique of PCNL without any major complications and with the advantages of preventing radiation hazards, preventing damage to adjacent organs, and checking for residual calculi.
IVP reveals mostly distortion of calices or caliceal
ectasia as a result of renal mass involving the collecting system.
We included patients with upper caliceal
, middle caliceal
and renal pelvic stones with stone burden [greater than or equal to] 2 cm, lower caliceal
stones [greater than or equal to] 1.
diverticula developing into simple renal cyst.
Percutaneous nephrolithotomy for complex caliceal
calculi and staghorn stones in children less than 5 years of age.
The aim of our study was to evaluate the efficacy of postoperative prilocaine 2% injection into the skin, underskin, muscle and fascia layers in the acute pain management after a lower caliceal
puncture during PCNL.

3 Upper ureter 2 Study by T.
Patients who had an upper caliceal
access procedure underwent a chest film to detect any chest complications.
The sonographic appearance of milk of calcium in renal caliceal
Supracostal percutaneous nephrolithotomy for upper pole caliceal
locations of stones is more predictive for stone-free rates for staghorn stones.
The cases without caliceal
or pelvic dilation were classified as grade 0 hydronephrosis, tumours with pelvic dilation only were classified as grade 1, and the cases accompanying mild calix dilation were classified as grade 2.
PCNL is associated with several concerns regarding the management of stone disease in malformed kidneys, including abnormal position with abnormal renal and caliceal
orientation, abnormal relations of calices to the renal pelvis and upper ureter, aberrant vasculature, relative kidney immobility impeding the maneuverability of rigid instruments, and abnormal relations with other organs, particularly the bowel.
