Initial experience in the field of pediatric percutaneous nephrolitholapaxia in Bulgaria.

Folia Med (Plovdiv) 2021 Jun;63(3):348-354

UMHATEM "N.I. Pirogov", Sofia, Bulgaria.

Introduction: Pediatric urolithiasis is a very specific and challenging problem in the field of modern urology. Currently, there are three major methods for kidney stone removal: the extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), the retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS), and the percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), the latter one proving to be an efficient and safe monotherapy of stones even with larger burden. Different sizes of nephroscopes are used (standard, mini, micro), where smaller size is logically correlated with safer profile, especially in pediatric population. Read More

[A comparison between 24h urine collection and overnight spot urines in evaluating the risk of stone disease].

G Ital Nefrol 2021 Feb 16;38(1). Epub 2021 Feb 16.

Dipartimento di Urologia, Università di Tor Vergata, Roma, Italia.

Despite being recommended by most guidelines, the metabolic evaluation of patients with nephrolithiasis has limited diffusion due to difficulties relating both to the access to laboratory investigations and to urine collection modalities. Consequently, in addition to the classical 24-h collection, alternative and simplified collection modes have been proposed. We report here on the comparison between metabolic evaluation carried out on 24-h double collection (Lithotest) and overnight spot urines (RF test). Read More
