Upper-pole access for percutaneous nephrolithotomy: comparison of supracostal and infracostal approaches.

Upper-pole access for percutaneous nephrolithotomy: comparison of supracostal and infracostal... The advantage of upper-pole access for nephrolithotomy is direct access to most of the intrarenal collecting system and upper ureter. Upper-pole access can be achieved either supracostally and subcostally. Because of the anatomic location of the kidneys, the supracostal approach is associated with a higher rate of pulmonary complications. We compared the efficacy and safety of the supracostal and infracostal upper-pole approaches. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of endourology Pubmed

Upper-pole access for percutaneous nephrolithotomy: comparison of supracostal and infracostal approaches.


Abstract

The advantage of upper-pole access for nephrolithotomy is direct access to most of the intrarenal collecting system and upper ureter. Upper-pole access can be achieved either supracostally and subcostally. Because of the anatomic location of the kidneys, the supracostal approach is associated with a higher rate of pulmonary complications. We compared the efficacy and safety of the supracostal and infracostal upper-pole approaches.
