Value of CT angiography in reducing the risk of hemorrhage associated with mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy

Abstract: Purpose:To evaluate the clinical value of computed tomography angiography (CTA) in reducing the risk of hemorrhage associated with mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL).Materials and Methods:A total of 158 patients with renal or ureter stones who had undergone mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy were retrospectively enrolled into this study from May of 2011 to April of 2014. Group 1 (65 patients) underwent computed tomography angiography, and Group 2 (93 patients) underwent non-contrast CT. The clinical chara… Show more

“… A nomogram was also developed by the CROES PCNL Study Group in 2013 to predict the SFR after PCNL, which showed an area under curve of 0.76 In Asia, the Modified S‐ReSC Score was developed, which assigned a score of 1–9 based on the number of sites involved in the renal collecting system The use of NCCT can provide most information required for an appropriate and successful intervention. However, the use of contrast‐enhanced CT is sometimes required …”

“…Currently, the combined use of preoperative computed tomography (CT) and intraoperative ultrasound-guided localization significantly improves the safety and efficiency of PCNL. [ 6 , 7 ] On the basis of our experience on PCNL, a prospectively randomized controlled study was designed to investigate the role of pre-designed route on computer tomography urography (CTU) in the ultrasound-guided PCNL. In CTU group, a proper puncturing route was designed on CTU, and the approximate puncturing area was marked on the back, followed by ultrasound-guided PCNL.…”
