Transperitoneal laparoscopic pyelolithotomy versus retrograde intrarenal surgery for treatment of renal pelvis stones in horseshoe kidneys: A prospective randomized study.
Sixty patients underwent pyelolithotomy during this period, including both open pyelolithotomy (n=30) and laparoscopic retroperitoneal pyelolithotomy (n=30).
Seventy-nine children were treated with ESWL, percutaneous procedures, drugs, stents, or close observation; only 25 children required surgical procedures including cystolithotomy, nephrolithotomy, partial nephrectomy, pyelolithotomy, ureterolithotomy, and urethral stone extraction.
In a study which compared PNL and laparoscopic pyelolithotomy methods, PNL was performed in 39 patients with [greater than or equal to]2 cm kidney stones and the duration of operation and length of hospital stay was reported to be 110[+ or -]54.6 minutes and 4.76[+ or -]1.60 days, respectively.
Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is the gold standard endourologic procedure for patients with renal calculi more than 2cm in size.1 It is less invasive, less painful, with shorter hospital stay compared to open pyelolithotomy and it is also associated with lower morbidity and early recovery.2-4 Percutaneous nephrostomy (PCN) tube is inserted into the collecting system at the conclusion of surgery.
(4) When we analyzed previous studies on the effect of ORSS on PNL, we found that open pyelolithotomy, open nephrolithotomy, open nephropyelolithotomy, and partial nephrectomy for a non-functional part of the kidney were all grouped as ORSS.
Intra operative peripheral nerve injuries were described as early as 1894.1 However, their incidence remains vague and is probably underestimated.2 Radial nerve injury has been reported following cardiac surgery,3 pyelolithotomy,4 laparoscopic adrenalectomy,4 laprotomy5 and orthopaedic surgery.6 A case of radial nerve palsy following appendectomy under general anaesthesia is presented.

Fernstrom and Johansson (1976) were the first to report the percutaneous removal of renal stones and termed it "percutaneous pyelolithotomy"3,10.
Case-2: A 45-year-old female who had a history of (R) nephrectomy and (L) pyelolithotomy followed by multiple extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) sessions, presented with (L) multiple large non-obstructing renal stones.
