Comparison of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy for Inferior Caliceal
Calculus Between Children and Adults: A Retrospective Analysis-Why Do Results Vary?
As most patients with ADPKD have anatomical renal distortion and caliceal
elongation, only one access tract cannot reach different portions of the collecting system in the PCNL procedure.
Left kidney of small dimensions (22/37/46 mm), showing numerous atrophy areas, accompanied on the contour by the corresponding dilatation of the caliceal
The inclusion criteria were pelvic or caliceal
stones that were larger than 2.5 cm in diameter, while patients with gross kidney anomalies like horseshoe kidney or ectopic kidney, and those with uncontrolled coagulopathies were excluded from the study.
Efficacy of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy for isolated lower caliceal
stones in children compared with stones in other renal locations.
Prospective long-term followup of patients with asymptomatic lower pole caliceal
diverticula are incidental findings of little or no significance.
Effect of potassium citrate therapy on stone recurrence and residual fragments after shockwave lithotripsy in lower caliceal
calcium oxalate urolithiasis: a randomized controlled trial.
"Those two terms often are used interchangeably in the literature, he said, explaining that pyelectasis is dilation of the renal pelvis, while hydronephrosis also is characterized by caliceal
A total of 69 patients with small lower fragments 4 mm or less in the caliceal
region participated in the study.
The stone was located in the proximal ureter in one patient, whereas the remaining two patients had lower caliceal
Efficacy of flexible ureterorenoscopy with holmium laser in the management of stone-bearing caliceal
Methods: We retrospectively searched all radiographic records for patients treated at our institution between January 2009 and January 201 6 using the terms "forniceal rupture," "fornix rupture," "calyx rupture," or "caliceal
rupture," and identified 111 patients.
IVP reveals mostly distortion of calices or caliceal
ectasia as a result of renal mass involving the collecting system.
These include smooth or irregular ureteric filling defects seen in 35% of cases, filling defects within dilated calices secondary to partial or complete obstruction in 26%, or caliceal
amputation in 19% of cases.
