A Novel Nonvascular Application of the Steerable Microcatheter.

Cureus 2018 Oct 19;10(10):e3469. Epub 2018 Oct 19.

Interventional Radiology, University of Florida College of Medicine, Jacksonville, USA.

The percutaneous nephrostomy (PCN) is a relatively common interventional procedure used to treat a multitude of nephro-urological conditions. Traditionally, interventional radiologists use ultrasound guidance, needles, catheters, and guidewires to access the collecting system percutaneously. The placement of a nephro-ureterostomy stent may be precluded by challenging renal calyx anatomy or an underlying disease process that obstructs placement. Read More

Image-Guided Nephrostomy Interventions: How to Recognize, Avoid, or Get Out of Trouble.

Tech Vasc Interv Radiol 2018 Dec 30;21(4):261-266. Epub 2018 Jul 30.

Wake Forest School of Medicine, Medical Center Boulevard, Winston-Salem, NC.

Image-guided percutaneous nephrostomy is a relatively safe and successful procedure for access to the renal collecting system for multiple purposes including relief of urinary obstruction, urinary diversion, access for endourologic procedures, and diagnostic testing. Although placing a percutaneous nephrostomy catheter is most times straightforward, providing immediate benefit for the patient and satisfaction for the practitioner, there can be situations that make the procedure more difficult or risky. A thorough review of the patient's imaging and medical record will help to set a path for success. Read More

Ultrasound for kidney access in percutaneous nephrolithotomy: a contemporary review.

Med Ultrason 2018 12;20(4):508-514

Center for Uronephrology and Renal Transplantation, Fundeni Clinical Institute, Bucharest, Romania, Urologic Surgery, Fundeni Clinical Institute,"Carol Davila" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest, Romania.

Nowadays percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is the standard of care for renal staghorn calculus or large (>20 mm) pelvic or caliceal stones, as well as for the failure of other treatment options. This review aims to evaluate the contemporary use of ultrasound imaging in PCNL, by comparing it to conventional fluoroscopy, reviewing data regarding the complication and success rate of nephrostomy tract creation and stone free rate (SFR), as well as data concerning the learning curve for these procedures and cost indicators. The evidence acquired shows that the ultrasound guided access (USGA) is a comparable method with the classic fluoroscopic guided access (FGA), with a similar safety profile, with a significant reduction in radiation exposure, up to radiation free complete PCNL.

A New Twist on an Old Technique: Lawson Retrograde Endoscopic-Guided Nephrostomy Access for Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy in Prone Split-Leg Position.

J Endourol Case Rep 2018 29;4(1):190-194. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

Department of Urology, University of California, Irvine, California.

A minority of urologists performing percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) achieve their own nephrostomy access. In an effort to simplify the access part of PCNL, we herein describe our initial experience with endoscopic-guided retrograde percutaneous access in the prone split-leg position. After informed consent, a confirmed negative urine culture, and 1 week pretreatment with tamsulosin, four carefully selected PCNL patients underwent endoscopic-guided retrograde access in a prone split-leg position using the Lawson catheter.
