Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy

What is Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy?

Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy is a surgical procedure for treating larger kidney stones located in the kidney. It is a keyhole surgery that is performed through a small incision in the skin. In this procedure, a percutaneous nephrolithotomy needle is passed into the pelvis of the kidney to remove the stones. Its entry is guided with the help of x-ray imaging or ultrasound. In case the stone is too big, it is first broken into smaller pieces. A similar procedure called mini percutaneous nephrolithotomy involves smaller instruments.

What are the risks of Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy?

The risks associated with Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy are:

  • Infections
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Injury to the colon
  • Injury to the renal blood vessels
